My phone was stolen and I was unable to reclaim my number from my telco. Therefore, I'm not able to log in to WhatsApp with my stolen number. There are very important messages and contacts that I have to retrieve, and I knew that the backups were in Google Drive, but I can't locate the backup file.

Any help that I can retrieve my chat history from Google Drive?

    Does simply trying whatsapp on a different phone not work? Login to the same Google account on the other phone and see if the chats download.
