To Transfer WhatsApp Messages from Android to Android, you need to backup old whatsApp chats to Google drive, then transfer backup to your new android phone.
Or you can use Android WhatsApp Transfer to transfer Android WhatsApp chat history from one Android phone to another directly on computer.

Make sure to check the detailed steps section below if your WhatsApp folder is located in your device's internal memory.
1. Install WhatsApp on your new phone.
2. Verify the phone number in WhatsApp that you had when you backed up your chats.
3. Now click Restore when prompted to restore your message history.

Method 1: Google drive can be used to backup Whatsapp message now, but only for latest 7days' messages. To backup by google drive, go to WhatsApp settings, tap chats - back up chat, and log in your google account.
Then you can see the restore WhatsApp message request when you install it in your new phone.

Method 2: If you want to move the integrated WhatsApp messages, you should do a local backup file transfer, which is quite complicated operation.
Copy the folder WhatsApp/Database from HTC to Samsung S3 mini, then you can see the local backup restore option when you install the Whatsapp in your Samsung S3 mini.

Method 3: in a convenient way, I suggest you try the tool in this page about move WhatsApp conversations from HTC to Samsung, just one click.

if you want to change your phone then just open you account in the new phone. But if you want to change your account number then there is another method for this. Follow the steps:

Open whatsApp in you current phone.
Go to menu and tap Account.
Open Change number.
Tap Next.
Here you have to put your phone numbers and just tap done and its done.

Hope it will help you.

Some phone to phone transfer apps can help you move almost everything from one phone to another even they run different operating systems.

The folder is located in your device's internal memory or external SD card. To use local backup to transfer WhatsApp messages between Android devices,
follow the steps below:
1. Launch WhatsApp on your old Android device, go to
Menu Button > Settings > Chats > Chat backup > Back Up,
and back up the WhatsApp messages.

With this method, you can send WhatsApp messages to your new Phone and view them on Phone in the form of email, but you can't open it on WhatsApp.
Here is how:
Step 1. Directly find and open WhatsApp on Android, then go to "Setting > Chats Setting > Chat History > Email Chat".
Step 2. Select the conversation you wish to send to your Phone, then a pop-up window will appear and ask you whether to transfer WhatsApp messages with media files or not. Choose one of the option and then go to the next step.
Step 3. Now, you'll be taken to a new page, here you need to type your email account and click the "Send" button.

Generally speaking, you need to backup WhatsApp messages with WhatsApp Backup on Android phone, then restore the backups on Android phone.

Below is the detailed steps:

Step 1. Go to "Setting > Chats > Chat backup > Back Up Now" to backup your Android WhatsApp messages.

Step 2. Uninstall WhatsApp on Android, then turn to another Android phone.

Step 3. Run WhatsApp on Android and login to your WhatsApp account. When you see a message "Message Backup Found", don't hesitate to click "Restore" button to restore the backed up Android WhatsApp messages to Android Phone.

If you're choosing to use the WhatsApp Backup to reach your goal, you need to uninstall WhatsApp on Android after backing up, then install it on new Android Phone.

Hi Loie,
I have just found your reply and I am having the same problem. I have tried following your advice line by line, but sadly without success. I have also tried using Google Drive to effect the transfer of the old chats, but again without success.
When I re-install WhatsApp, and after entering the phone number, the screen message on the phone states "backup found today 245mb", and I then click on restore, but after only a few seconds, the next message states" 0 messages restored".
I assume I am missing something or doing something incorrectly. Have you any suggestions?
I look forward to hearing from you,
