It’s a very exciting time when you go out and get yourself a new phone, whether that refers to you upgrading your current device or simply treating yourself to the latest tech. However, while it’s all fun and games to play with your new camera, there’s a common problem that many of us face: Transferring all our data from one device to the next.

Of course, there are many apps, such as social media apps and games, where this isn’t a issue. Simply download the app, sign in to your device and carry on as normal. Simple. On the other hand, apps like WhatsApp and other content apps have all your old messages and conversations on your old phone, so how are you supposed to get them across?

What’s more, if you’re using a modded version of the WhatsApp application, in this case, GBWhatsApp, you’re going to have even more problems trying to get everything across.

Fortunately, all is not lost, and there are plenty of ways you go about transferring your GBWhatsApp messages from one phone to another; you just need to know how. With this in mind, let’s explore everything you need to know!

Part 1: Why Users Cannot Back up  GBWhatsApp Chats to Google Drive?

Firstly, you’re probably why you can’t back up GBWhatsApp chat to Google Drive when transferring messages to a new phone like you can with other apps. After all, surely an app with so many features and functions can do something as simple as this; especially with WhatsApp’s built-in Google Drive backup process?

If only it was that simple.

The problem is that GBWhatsApp is a modified version of WhatsApp, which means it doesn’t have access to the Google Drive backup feature. This is mainly because WhatsApp has a special link with Google Drive that means your backup files don’t affect your Google Drive storage space quota.

However, the modified GBWhatsApp application doesn’t have this function because it has no official connection to Google Drive. This means you’ll need to find another way around the problem of learning how to transfer GBWhatsApp messages to a new phone.

Fortunately, we’ve got just the thing;

Now connect both your current device and your new device. This can be Android to Android because GBWhatsApp is only supported on Android devices, but you can transfer from any device to iOS if you wish. Make sure you’re using the official USB cables where possible.

Make sure you’re connecting your current device first and then your new device second, so the current phone is displayed on the left-hand side of the screen. If not, use the flip option in the middle!

Part 3: Common Way to Transfer GBWhatsApp Messages to a New Phone

While Dr.Fone - WhatsApp Transfer is easily the most effective and quickest solution out there when it comes to learning how to transfer GBWhatsApp messages to a new phone, but it’s not the only way. In fact, it won’t work if you don’t have access to a computer.

Nevertheless, if these things can’t be helped, you’ll still want to transfer your content, so below we’re going to show you how. Be warned, this process can take some time, but it will work when transferring your files.

Here we go;

Step #1  - Preparing Your Files

  • Firstly, you’ll need to clarify what transfer you’re making. Are you transferring from the official WhatsApp app to another official WhatsApp app? Are you transferring between GBWhatsApp editions, or are you inter-transferring between the two?
  • If you’re transferring between the normal versions of the app, you can move onto the next step.

  • If you’re switching between apps, such as GBWhatsApp to the official app, you’ll need to follow the steps below;
  1. Open your file manager app and find the GBWhatsApp file. Now rename this file to the version of the app you’re transferring to. For example, ‘GBWhatsApp’ becomes ‘WhatsApp.’
  2. Tap into the folder and rename every instance of ‘GBWhatsApp’ to ‘WhatsApp.’ For example, ‘GBWhatsApp Audio’ becomes ‘WhatsApp Audio.’

You’ll also want to make sure there’s no version of WhatsApp installed on your new phone. We’ll sort that out later.

Step #2 - Transferring Your Files

  • Insert an SD card into your current device.
  • Navigate File Manager back to your WhatsApp/GBWhatsApp folder and transfer the entire folder to the SD Card. Wait for this process to be completed.
  • Now safely remove your SD card and insert it into your new device.
  • Now navigate File Manager on your new phone, find the SD card and copy the WhatsApp/GBWhatsApp folder and copy and paste it to your new phone’s internal memory.
  • Now remove the SD card.

Step #3 - Restore GBWhatsApp Chats to a New Phone

  • With your WhatsApp/GBWhatsApp conversations safely stored on your new device, it’s time to bring them back into your new WhatsApp/GBWhatsApp app.
  • Install GBWhatsApp on a new phone and onto your device like you would with any other app.
  • Load up the app and insert your phone number to confirm and log into your account. You may need to enter an OBT code when prompted.

This is why we highly recommend using the safe and secure Dr.Fone - WhatsApp Transfer software that can help you transfer your content seamlessly.
