    I had a Huawei Nova 7i. Now im shifting over to OnePlus Nord. I was able to shift all data from the Nova 7i to the Nord. However, I am not able to shift the whatsapp data due to no google support on the Huawei. I have tried a lot of methods with no luck.
    Any suggestions??

    Try sideloading the Play Store app on the Huawei from APKmirror:
    I've just done this, as my new PRC version Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra didn't come with the Play Store. Also I had previously installed the Play Store on a Googleless Huawei Mate 10.

    As for transferring WhatsApp data. In my situation as I had a new Samsung device, I used Smart Switch to transfer all apps and data from the Huawei to the Samsung, and that did copy my WhatsApp data as well.


    I should note that sideloading the Play Store APK on Googleless China phones in this manner may not always work. Like it didn't work with a friend's Xiaomi 10S a few days ago, Play Store just crashes on this MIUI device. And previously China phones always had to be rooted to get the Play Store installed.

    If you can install WhatsApp can you not manually copy the WhatsApp files from your old phone (via USB to a computer and back, or using a flash drive and an OTG adapter) and tell it to restore from the most recent backup (WhatsApp should be taking daily backups and keeping the last 7 days, that is the default behaviour)?

    Apologies if you've tried that, but all we know is that you've tried "many methods", not what those are.
