So you installed WhatsApp through Petal Search, but the underlying problem remains: how to keep your chat history from your old Android device? Don’t worry, just follow the steps below to restore all your conversations to your new Huawei smartphone.

First, back up your WhatsApp chats on your old device by going to Options, go to Settings, then Chat. From there, tap on Chat Backup and then uncheck the “Sync with Google Drive” option before clicking Backup. This allows the app to save all of your chat history on the device itself.

Then use a file exploration tool like Solid Explorer to locate the backup data on your phone by going to the Memory folder and then to the WhatsApp folder. Once there, highlight the Database folder inside (which contains the backup data) and then copy it to a USB-C data stick. After that copy duplicate folder from data key to internal storage memory of your Huawei phone. Alternatively, you can also transfer the folder to the smartphone via Bluetooth.

After the Database folder is transferred to your Huawei smartphone, just load WhatsApp for the first time. The app will then detect the backup data and ask you if you want to restore it to the device. Just tap Yes, verify your phone number and the private messaging platform will load your chat history. After that, you are pretty much good to go!
