How to Backup and Sync Android Data to Google? (3 Ways included)

As we all know, smartphones today, whether Android or iOS system, are powerful. With a smartphone, you can not only take and download many photos and videos but also store a lot of other kinds of data like apps data, contacts, device settings, and SMS text messages, etc. on the phone.

However, too much data on the phone may make your phone run slowly and you are at the risk of losing data for phone lost. In this case, many people may choose to backup or sync their Android data to a safe place. Since Google has penetrated our life especially when we use Android phones, backing up Android phone data or content to Google has been the first choice for many people.

What you’ll need

To make this work, you’ll need an Android device that includes Google One. It’s important to note, however, that Google One is a subscription service and it has plans starting at $1.99/month for 100GB. You can check out the Google One price matrix to figure out which plan best suits your needs. If you’re a heavy Google Drive user, upgrading to a subscription should be an absolute no-brainer. I was constantly bumping up against my storage limit until I purchased a 2TB plan. Now I don’t have to worry about running out of space on Google Drive for some time.

Once you subscribe to a plan, make sure to install Google One on your Android device (if it doesn’t automatically install).

And that’s all you need. Let’s get this configuration taken care of.

  1. Open Google Photos as normal and, again, touch the icon represented by “three lines”;
