Importing Old Backup from Whatsapp

i just bought Nokia 8...my previous mobile is Lumia 950 XL and all the backup from Whatsapp goes to onedrive(hotmail) but now i'm having a problem restoring my previous backup. i downloaded the entire backup to my computer and reuploaded to google drive since it was the only account from gmail i can use.


i uploaded my entire backup to google drive and the problem is i cannot restore the previous whatsapp messages...is there any way or option that i can restore all my old whatsapp messages to my nokia 8...???


thank you


1. Download the file from Google drive 2. Paste it in Whatsapp/Databases by going into internal or sd card storage. 3. Rename the file from msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt12 to msgstore.db.crypt12 4. Uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp 5. Tap Restore when asked during setup

Dear Dheeraj it didn't work...i cannot import the old whatsapp backup file. there is NO OPTION for it on Android. all i can see inside Google Settings is BACKUP button pushing to Google Drive Server.
