Where are WhatsApp messages stored when they arrive? They are stored in backup at 4 AM but before that, where are our latest messages stored? How can we access this location?
Well, you can't get onto the stored location and all but if you make backup then you can located it over File Manager>WhatsApp>Database folder !– Peter CarlosJan 30, 2015 at 11:54

Just to confirm, is this the location where the latest WhatsApp messages (as they are received) are stored? Apr 1, 2016 at 14:32
The parent folder appears to be
/com.whatsapp/databases/now. Jan 20, 2021 at 20:42
