Backup your WhatsApp Messages

  • Open WhatsApp messenger
  • Press the Menu key, and go to ‘Settings’.
  • Now click on “Chat Settings”
  • Now tap once on “Backup Conversations” and backup will start.

The WhatsApp will overwrite any old backups you created and make a new one. You cannot make multiple backups and none of the images will be included in the backup. They will be there in your SD card and will be linked after the messages are restored.

Restore WhatsApp Messages

  • Install WhatsApp on your new phone.
  • Click Yes when prompted to restore your message history.


That’s it! Now your new phone has your old phone’s WhatsApp Messages and all chat history.
