Tap & Go

Use the Tap & Go feature to effortlessly transfer your Google Account, backed up applications, and data from an old Android device to your new device. The Tap & Go feature is part of the initial setup process that runs when you turn on your device for the first time.

Note: You cannot return to Tap & Go if you complete your device setup and elect to skip this step.

Use Tap & Go

Before beginning the setup process on your new device, ensure that the NFC feature on your old device is turned on and the device is unlocked.

Note: While the Tap & Go feature works using the cellular network, it is recommended that you use Wi-Fi®.

3. Review the Terms and conditions, touch NEXT, and then touch AGREE.


4. When you reach the Tap & Go screen, briefly place the two devices back to back. Separate the devices when you hear a tone or feel a vibration.


5. When prompted, touch OK on your old device.


6. The process may take a few minutes while your new device copies backed up accounts and information from your old device.

7. When prompted, enter your Google password on your new device and touch Sign in.


8. Review the Google services terms and privacy policies, touch MORE, and then touch NEXT.
