Android Central Question

I switched to galaxy s9 from other lg g4. My whatsapp was backed up in drive. When opening whatsapp i clicked restore and it downloaded successfully.

After, the chat history still doesn't show. I tried closing and opening, restarting phone and uninstalling and installing the app and nothing worked. Anyone can help with this?

Thanks

Please only post the same question once. We can see them in both places. (If you posted in the wrong place, use the ! report icon to ask that someone move it.)

Did you back WhatsApp's chat to Drive, using something in WhatsApp to do it? Or did you back up the app itself (which may not back up the chats, and that's up to the developers of WhatsApp).

OP here.

On my old phone I selected the daily backup to Drive option from within whatsapp.

After using whatsapp "restore" option on new phone (right after installing) it did download a 1.2gb backup, but still won't show the chat history.
