This function will also be useful if you changed your phone. You can download your entire chat history from the backup, and continue where you left off.

Using third-party apps

Many people forget about backups. And when some info is gone, there’s nowhere to recover it from.

Well, but there’s something that still can be done. You can try one of those recovery apps from the Google Play Store. To name a few:

  • WooTechy iSeeker
  • iReparo
  • Cancelly

The biggest drawback is that most of such applications aren’t free, and results of their work are unpredictable: maybe they will restore something or maybe they won’t. So you’re buying a pig in a poke there.
