Reinstalled whatsapp without a backup, lost all messages and group chats on my device but according to other members of the group chats I am still in them, but I don't receive any messages from them and they don't appear in my chats.

I can't be reinvited to them and I am not sure what to do.

I have attempted to restore from local data on my phone but it always says backup failed.

When you reinstall the app, you get an option to load those previous messages. In this case, you would have your app as it was before you uninstalled.

I'd also recommend to reinstall again and activate the backup-function as Vikas stated. You should automatically join the groups, even if you didn't use the backup. Did you verify your phonenumber already??

Yes... Agree with @Igel Chris to re-install it again...

And yeah you should have selected the option to store the back up conversations.

Even if you click restore, actually the restore data is very small. So you still can't get the messages and groups you once belonged to
