How to restore all settings (home screen icons, etc) from Google Drive backup?

Ask a Question
I’ve just got a Pixel 5 and want to restore all my data and settings from my Pixel 3. On my Pixel 3 i have the backup in Google Drive (and have made sure the same is done within Whatsapp). When I chose the backup when setting up my phone – all the apps copied over but things like my home screen, SMS, messages and other settings didn’t copy over.

Ideally I’m looking at setting up my Pixel 5 – just as my Pixel 3 was exactly. Settings, etc. Like a carbon copy. I used to have an iPhone and this was possible via iCloud.

Is there anyway of doing this on Android via Google Drive backup? Or would I need to physically connect both phones.
