Can't really help you with Google Drive, as I don't really use it much, apart from occasionally sharing lesson materials and Chinese device ROMs sometimes.

You're using a Samsung Note8? But FWIW last week i did use Samsung Smart Switch to transfer apps and data from a Huawei Mate10 phone to a new Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra, and that did copy over all my WhatsApp content as well.

Can you not manually copy the backup files from your older phone (the WhatsApp chat backup plus the WhatsApp/media folder) to the new phone and restore there? It may take a little fiddling to get the media right, but it's possible - I've not done it, but my brother did when he last changed phones.
I didnt do that still last backup showing 11GB of last backup in my google drive .
Is this 11GB is my whatsapp files containing all msgs?
