If I make a back up my whatsapp data in google drive can i get it restored it in my windows phone by google drive ? Is it possible ?
No it is not possible.
For some reason WhatsApp has different backup formats for Android ad Windows phone making this difficult. In Android the backups are stored in a single file with the extension .db.crypt12. But on Windows phone the backup is stored into 3 different files namely calls.db, messages.db, settings.db.
As far as I know it is not possible to change one type of backup into an another.
If you are getting both a new Windows Phone and a new phone number, use our Change Number feature before you back up and transfer your chat history to the new phone.
Transfer your chats with SD card:
- Make sure your phone has an SD card slot and you have made a backup on your SD card. Learn how to back up your chat history in this FAQ article.
- Remove the SD card from your old Windows Phone and insert it into your new Windows Phone.
- After inserting the SD card to your new phone, install WhatsApp from the Microsoft Store and verify your number.
- WhatsApp will ask you to restore your chats and media from a backup when you verify your number. Simply tap "Restore" when prompted to do so.
Transferring your chat history can take a while to complete, depending on your Internet connection and back up size. Make sure you are connected to a strong and stable Wi-Fi connection. Please leave your phone connected to a power source until the back up completes.
You can also email your chat history to keep a record of your chats.
