How do I transfer data from my Google™ Account on another NFC-compatible device to my Samsung Galaxy S5 mini?
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.
Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
Use Tap & Go
Although the Tap & Go feature works using the mobile data network, we recommend that you use a Wi-Fi® network.
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.
You cannot return to Tap & Go if you complete your device setup and elect to skip this step.
Turn on your new device and follow the setup prompts until you reach the Wi-Fi screen.
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 and touch Sign in.
Complete the setup process. The process may take a few minutes while your new device restores accounts and downloads previously installed applications.
