How do I transfer data from my Google™ Account on another NFC compatible device to my Samsung Galaxy S5 Active?
Use the Tap & Go feature to effortlessly transfer your Google™ Account, backed-up applications, and data from your old Android™ device to a new Android device.
Use Tap & Go
The Wi-Fi® feature on your new device must be turned on and connected to use the Tap & Go feature.
Make sure the NFC feature on your old device is turned on and the device is unlocked.
Power on your new device and follow the setup prompts until you reach the Wi-Fi screen. If necessary, touch the slider Off to turn Wi-Fi on. Connect to the desired Wi-Fi network.
Continue to follow the setup prompts until you reach the Tap & Go screen shown below.
Briefly place the two devices back to back. Separate the devices when you hear a tone or feel a vibration.
When prompted, touch OK on your old device.
The process may take a few minutes while your new device copies backed up accounts and information from your old device.
When prompted, enter your Google password on your new device.
Choose the backup device and applications you want to restore and touch NEXT.
Review the Google services' terms and privacy policies, and then touch NEXT.
Complete the setup process. The process may take a few minutes while your new device restores accounts and downloads previously installed applications.
