    Dont restore. From what I have read, you can just "Option+update" 9.3.1 .ipsw in iTunes.

    Yeah this is true and I have done this twice.
    However, I guess he is "actually restoring" when writing the post.
    And if IS true, then there is only one answer: no. You cannot restore from your previous backup, no matter whether it is stored at cloud or local.

    I believe you are correct. The OP could go back to beta. Restore from backup and then go back to 9.3.1 via iTunes. More steps but same result with backup intact.

    iCloud will not restore your whatsapp history because your firmware version is older than the version your backup is created. But for beta, things may be different. I don't know the exact, nor I have experience.
