Those apps would have to provide Google integration hooks to automatically be available for that backup.

You can easily backup Whatsapp by going into its settings -> Chats -> Chat backup.

I'm pretty sure that Facebook Messenger and Instagram are auto backed up on the Meta platform.

Never used Tiktok. Probably backed up on their servers in Singapore or China.

@useroXAjCacGS4 SMS/MMS messages are backed up to the Samsung Cloud. 

Apps data is also backed up to Samsung cloud. This works for apps which have provided the hooks for Samsung cloud to backup the data.
