    Put the old phone's Google account on the new phone, so it wiill get the backup from the old phone. If that doesn't include the texts, use SMS Backup & Restore to back up on the old phone, copy the backup file to the new phone (same folder structure) and restore on the new phone.

    How do you know the messages were not backed up? You created a new Google account for the new device? You'll need Drive signed in to your old account using the new phone in order to access the backup that is stored in that account.

    In order to restore Whatsapp backups on a new device you need 2 things -
    1. The same phone number as on the old device
    2. The same Google account as used on the old device
