    Restore Older WhatsApp Messages On Android


    If you want more than one day’s of backup there’s another way to restoring your messages which is much more manual. WhatsApp backs up 7 days of history in your WhatsApp Database Directory. In that case, you can restore 7 days’ older data in your Android phone. Here are the steps below:


    Step 1: You have to go to WhatsApp database folder through any Android file Manager App.

    Restoring WhatsApp Data from Google Drive


    It’s a magic to restore WhatsApp backup from GDrive as one doesn’t needs to do anything. Your device just needs to be connected to the Google account that you linked to your WhatsApp earlier. After installing WhatsApp, it’ll look for local and Google Drive backups and give the Restore option. Note: If you skip restore then you won’t be able to restore either of the backup later.

    On selecting Restore, WhatsApp will instantly restore all your messages whereas the media files from GDrive gets downloaded and restored in background, such that you can access WhatsApp while restore happens. One can view the restore status either from notifications panel or Chat backup menu.
