The Android mobile platform, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, has its own pros and cons. Although one of the earliest versions of the mobile OS received an automatic backup option, the tool was not effective enough, partially losing the saved data.
For a long time, everything went unchanged, but now Google intends to thoroughly tackle this issue.
Currently, a smartphone owner who replaces one device with another will most likely have to transfer some part of his personal data manually, independently configuring applications and installing various software components. This is often done even with the simplest flashing of the device. One of the recent versions of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, integrated with the GDrive platform, was supposed to fix the flaw, but this did not bring an effective result.
Backups are the root of all trouble
One of the reasons for the massive dissatisfaction with the Android mobile system is the impossibility of performing manual backups in order to later use your information on another device after a minimal investment of time for basic setup. It is known that the Android system is equipped with automatic data copying without direct user intervention, while the copying process depends on a number of conditions: time, state of charge, Internet connection, etc.
The developers heard us
As it became known, in one of the next updates to Android, developers will build in the option to manually copy data, taking into account the wishes of users. Google plans to make transferring data from one phone to another easier and more convenient. In the current settings of the mobile system, it is possible to activate and deactivate the automatic copying process. However, after adding a manual tuning tool, it will be possible to make a copy of the information just before moving them to another device. The announced innovation will most likely become available in late 2018 - early 2019.
