Switching to a new phone gives you that happy and enthusiastic feeling until you remember your WhatsApp chats.

How To Switch To A New Smartphone Without Losing Your WhatsApp Chats Using Local Back Up 2

Normally there are actually two ways to reinstall WhatsApp without losing your chats –

  •  Using a local backup 
  • Using Google Drive
Most tech savvy people would actually use the Google drive feature because it’s easier but it doesn’t guarantee you will get your last chats because WhatsApp automatically backs up chats by 2.am and if your data connection isn’t turned on at that time, your chat backup would not be uploaded to Google Drive only the local backup would be kept and if you don’t know how to restore it properly you will lose your chats. So without further ado lets get started on how to restore your chats on a new phone using a local backup.
1. Install Xender On Both Phones Then Open Xender on both as well and connect the phones.
2.Go To File Manager > WhatsApp > Databases
3. Mark And Send The Databases Folder To The New Phone then close Xender
4.Install WhatsApp on the new phone but don’t launch it yet (If you have already launched it long press the WhatsApp icon till an info logo (i) comes up then click on it or drag the icon towards it,  this will vary depending on the launcher you are using. Once you do that click on the clear data option)
At this point you are done with the old device. Let’s set it up on your new device
5. On the new device Go To Your File Manager > WhatsApp > Databases then delete the Databases Folder 
6. Go To File Manager > Xender > Folder 
7. Copy The Databases folder and go to the WhatsApp folder and paste it there
8. Launch WhatsApp and continue the installation process
9. WhatsApp will detect the backups them restore your chats for you
Note: If you have a memory card try the whole process within your memory card first. If it doesn’t work for you then try with your phones inbuilt storage.

Google Photos remains one of my favorite apps, presenting itself as the perfect way to keep all your photos and videos organized in one place. In addition, they are accessible virtually anywhere and on any device.

As one of the most popular Google Apps, they continue to invest a lot of resources in developing and implementing new features. The latest addition will help you keep albums organized by making it easy to find what you’re really looking for.

A small detail that can save you a lot of time.

The new implementation may go unnoticed for many users, but it is no less important. In the albums tab, Google Photos will start displaying a new option, which allows you to organize your albums according to different conditions.

For now, at this early stage, you will be able to keep albums organized by what has the most recent photo, which you modified less recently or simply in alphabetical order. Most likely, Google will continue to develop this new implementation to make it even easier to find the album you want.

This new implementation is coming first hand to Android smartphone users and is not yet available for iOS or the web version. However, it is important to note that it is being launched through Google’s servers. That is, it will not reach all users at the same time.

In order to receive the new implementation, you need to have the latest version of the App, so make sure you don’t have any updates available.

Although it has not been officially confirmed, it is believed that once reaching all Android users, the new feature will eventually also be available for iOS and the web version of Google Photos.
