WhatsApp 188.8.131.52 not restoring local backup
WhatsApp 184.108.40.206 (released on 15/09/2021) does not restore from local backup. We're trying to understand if it's just a temporary issue.
In order to fix this:
- perform migration as usual using older WhatsApp 2.18.248, then uninstall it
- when requested to update WhatsApp, install pre-220.127.116.11 WhatsApp release 18.104.22.168 downloading here or from APKMirror. This is because Play Store provides latest version only
Next WhatsApp updates will come automatically through Google Play Store.
