Last Update date : 2015.12.01

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: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Important: You cannot return to Tap & Go if you select to skip this step while completing your device setup.

Using Tap & Go

Note: Although the Tap & Go feature works using the Bluetooth® feature, we recommend that you turn on Wi-Fi®.

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.

1. Turn on your new device and follow the setup prompts until you reach the Wi-Fi screen. If necessary, touch the slider 1 to turn Wi-Fi on 1.


2. Select your desired Wi-Fi network and enter the password, if necessary. Touch CONNECT.


3. Touch NEXT.


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. Set your time zone and adjust current date and time if needed. Touch NEXT.


9. Easily set up your new dvice by restoring from a backup of another device. Touch NEXT.


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


11. Complete the setup process. The process may take a few minutes while your new device restores accounts and downloads previously installed applications.
