WhatsApp communications are quite significant to the majority of us nowadays. When upgrading phones, transferring texts between Android devices is usually done via Google Drive backup. Is a better way to move WhatsApp from Android to Android without using Google Drive?

  • Why Don’t Recommend Using Google Drive for Android WhatsApp Messages Transmission

  • We do not have the option of making more than one backup with the Google Drive backup. If you need to make another WhatsApp backup for your new Android phone, the previous backup will be overwritten; you cannot maintain both the old and the latest backups on Google Drive at the same time.
  • Google Drive only offers backup and restore options; we cannot read or export the WhatsApp backup. As a result, you are unable to transfer particular WhatsApp data.
  • Many people believe that the Google ecosystem violates their privacy. The information is not secure with Google and could be misused.

Thus, such people disable the Google option in order to reduce its influence.

  • 2 Ways to Transfer WhatsApp Data between Android Devices without Google Drive

Aside from Google Drive, there are several other options for transferring WhatsApp messages from Android to Android. We will introduce two below, and you can pick the one that best meets your needs.
