Method 2: How to transfer data from Android to Android using Google Backups
To transfer data between two Android devices, make sure both the android devices have sync option enabled. Sync option is generally located in the drop-down notification panel or the phone settings menu.
Syncing makes sure that your Google account has the most recent version of your data as Backup. Assuming that you are using Google Contacts, Gmail, Drive, Chrome, and other services, it would sync all of them up to the cloud. Your emails, bookmarks, passwords, Wi-Fi details, and everything are now backed up and can be accessed from your new phone.
Now go to your phone’s backup settings. The name and location of this setting option vary from device to device, the simplest way to find it is by typing ‘backup’ in the settings search bar. In Pixel and Nexus devices, this setting is named as Backup & Reset and is located in Personal Tab of the settings menu.
Once you’re there, there will be many options and toggle switches that will enable several types of content to be backed up, including call history, calendar entries, contacts, device settings, installed apps, and their respective data, etc. You’ll see one option ‘Back up my data’ toggle, clicking this will make sure your data starts backing up to Google servers.
Google backup works through Google drive, head over to the Google Drive app and in the sidebar menu click Backup. This will show the complete list of devices that are linked to that particular Google Account. You can tap on the devices name to get more information about the Backup.
