How to Recover WhatsApp Chat History from Samsung Galaxy


As we know, WhatsApp as one of the top notch text messaging apps is ranked in top 10 both in Play Store and iTunes Store. It surprised me that it even beats the built-in messaging app like iMessage and Google Handout, mostly due to its cross platform function, meaning no matter you are using an iPhone or Android phone, you can send or receive messages for free. To be honest, I am a heavy user of WhatsApp as it’s the best communication channel I have found out for me. Hence, there are tons of messages already on my Samsung Galaxy S5. And sometimes, I have to clean the chat history because of limited storage on my device. However, it’s evitable to wrongly delete some important messages by accident. In such case, I need to figure out a way to restore deleted chat messages from Samsung S5.


WhatsApp Data Recovery is a smart widget to help you fully restore WhatsApp chat history from your Samsung device. With its powerful recovery algorithm, you can easily get back your lost messages without much effort. What’s more interesting is that you can preview each message before recovering them on your physical device. It also supports a wide range of Samsung devices, including Galaxy S series, Galaxy Note series, Galaxy Tab series and many more.


Supported Device: Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge/S6 Edge/S6/S5/S4/S3, Galaxy Note 5/4/3 and many more.
