Afaik, can’t be done from google drive. Looked into it extensively when my Note 10+ got stolen recently and tried to back up to my iPhone 12 Pro Max. Couldn’t get it to work.

@Ageless_ZA has done it plenty with an app. He can shed some light.

Amazed this is not a plug and play feature of Whatsapp

I believe it’s due to the fact that WhatsApp makes use of iCloud for cloud backups, and Google Drive on android. Would be great if there was an option to choose which cloud backup service to use.

@adamr

Choose the version suited to you.

I purchased both options, from android to iOS and iOS to Android. So I can now faff around with phones as I like and keep my history.

It does take awhile, it is definitely not instant but it works perfectly.

I'm having the same issue. I have managed to get it from iOS to Android in the past. Worked perfectly. However now that I want to move back to iOS, I cannot seem to find a viable solution.

Following...

Edit: Thanks @Ageless_ZA - will look into this. I'm a cheapskate though so will try to avoid paying. But if I have to, so be it.

It says “up to 3 mobile devices”. So it’s not reusable… One purchase for 3 devices then 🤔

This worked well for me
Good to know, first Google result I found honestly. Don't own an Apple device myself, but i figured every 2 cents help. :D
