Google launches unified Android backup system
Google: This Thursday (21), Google started posting “Backup by Google One “, which will replace the default backup system for Android devices. The change promises to unify the types of files that will be synced to the cloud in a single tool and will offer integration of videos, photos and MMS messages. Update will be finalized in the “coming weeks” and is offered for Android devices from version 8.0.
The novelty is an emigration of the tool, which already exists in the Google An application, at the device’s default settings. Unification means that the user will not have to manage and track the various backup services.
Streamline backup configuration
Synchronization of videos and pictures works with Google Photos, which ceased offering unlimited cloud space in June – some users are still able to “bypass” the system.
Consumers will be limited by 15 GB of free storage; however, there is a monthly fee to increase the ‘cap’, which starts at R $ 6.99. Find out about the benefits of each plan on the company’s website.
According to the Android Police portal, Backup by Google We will not replace the existing control panel in the Google An app, which is also available for iOS devices. The user will still be able to access the settings through the app or browser.
