If you plan to move your WhatsApp data from iPhone to Android in the near future, you may wonder if it is possible to backup WhatsApp on iPhone to Google Drive.
This article will show you an easy way to do it.
There is currently no way to backup WhatsApp messages on your iPhone directly to Google Drive.
While Google Drive can be an excellent solution to backup other types of data such as photos, contacts, and calendars, WhatsApp for iPhone only supports the backup of messages to iCloud.
But you can use a WhatsApp transfer tool to transfer the WhatsApp chats from iPhone to an Android device and then back up them to Google Drive. Let’s show you the process more closely.

Step 1: Open the program and select “WhatsApp Transfer” in the main window.
Step 2: Connect both devices to the computer and select the “Transfer WhatsApp Messages” tab. Once the program detects the devices, you should see both the Android and iPhone in the next window.
