How do I transfer data from my Google™ Account on another NFC-compatible device to my Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport?

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.

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.

  1. Turn on your new device and follow the setup prompts, including connecting to a Wi-Fi network.

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