    Hi there guys,

    today I replaced my OnePlus 3 with the iPhone 7.
    While installing WhatsApp I realized it should be deleted first from the Android phone in order to get the verification SMS on the iPhone.

    After that I logged in my account, but all the chats went lost.

    My question is: since I have all the chat backups on Google Drive, is there a way to restore all the chats from Google Drive backup?

    Thank you!

    I don't think you can, well you couldn't when I tried last year. Frustrating as I'd lost a fair few conversations on the app.
