How do I transfer data from my Google™ Account on another NFC-compatible device to my Samsung Galaxy S5?
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.
You cannot return to Tap & Go if you elect to skip this step while completing your device setup.
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 you use a Wi-Fi® connection.
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.
Turn on your new device and follow the setup prompts, including connecting to a Wi-Fi network.
Select your desired Wi-Fi network and enter the password, if necessary. Touch NEXT.
Review the EULA & Diagnostic Data agreements, make your selections, and touch NEXT.
Select Copy your Google Accounts, apps, and data from your other device and touch NEXT.
On the Tap & Go screen, briefly place the two devices back-to-back. Separate the devices when you hear a tone or feel a vibration.
When prompted on your old device, touch NEXT.
On your old device, touch COPY to begin the data transfer.
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.
