How Can I Get My Old WhatsApp Messages on My New Phone?

If you’ve gotten a new phone, you may be wondering how to get your old WhatsApp messages on your new device. Fortunately, there are a few different ways to do this.

The first option is to use the built-in WhatsApp backup feature. This feature allows you to back up your conversations, media files, and other data to Google Drive or iCloud.

To do this, open the WhatsApp app on your old device and go to Settings > Chats > Chat Backup. Then, select the frequency at which you’d like backups to occur (daily or weekly). Once backed up, you can then transfer the backup file from Google Drive or iCloud onto your new device.

Another option is to use a third-party app such as Wazzap Migrator. This app allows you to transfer your WhatsApp messages from one device to another without having to use an online backup service. All you have to do is install the app on both devices and follow the instructions provided by the app.

Finally, if you have an iPhone or iPad, you can use iTunes or iCloud Backup. To do this with iTunes, simply connect your old device to your computer and open iTunes.

Select your device and then click “Back Up Now” under the Summary tab. To restore this backup onto your new device, simply connect it and click “Restore Backup” under Summary.


Whether you’re using an Android or iOS device, there are many ways of transferring your old WhatsApp messages onto a new phone. The most reliable method is using a cloud-based backup service such as Google Drive or iCloud but if that isn’t available then third-party apps such as Wazzap Migrator can be used instead. Alternatively, an iPhone or iPad user can also take advantage of iTunes or iCloud Backup.
