Android Will Get Option to Manually Back Up User Data With ‘Future’ Update

While Android has the option to support your data onto Google Drive for a long period of time, Google is now set to enable an option to let users manually save their backups. The brand-new choice, which is most likely to ease the backup process specifically if you instantly have to preserve your personal data, will be a part of a future Android update. Unlike Android, Apple’s iOS is currently offering the way to by hand support the on-device content with a tap of a button in addition to permitting the automatic iCloud Backup function.

As shared on Reddit, Google through its public concern tracker verified the advancement of the manual backup alternative that is likely to sit along with the automatic backup function that we spotted even on devices running Android 4.4 KitKat. Among the early testers of Android 9.0 Pie highlighted the lack of the option to by hand begin a backup on Android devices. The beta tester stated that while the official support document for Android Oreo verifies the accessibility of the manual backup setting, it doesn’t exist in reality. This triggers the hassle as users have to plug in their gadgets to activate the automatic backup performance.

“We’ve postponed this issue for consideration in a future release. Thank you for your time to make Android much better,” Google said in reaction to the problem raised by the Android Pie beta tester on the public problem tracker.

It is uncertain whether Google will have the ability to push the manual backup option to Android 9.1 that will be an updated version of Android Pie or bring it to Android Q. Nevertheless, there is a way to begin by hand backing up your information by rooting your Android device. However for the unofficial technique, you need to establish ADB (Android Debug Bridge) and then pass the command “adb shell bmgr backupnow– all” each time when you wish to manually support your information onto Google Drive.

Notably, we do not recommend you to root your gadget to manually back up your data. It is, therefore, much better to wait till the official debut of the manual backup alternative.

As we mentioned, Apple is already using a method to by hand back up user information on iOS gadgets along with using the choice to automatically back up the information onto iCloud. You just have to go to your Apple ID profile from the Settings menu and then browse to iCloud > iCloud Backup > Back Up Now.

The manual backup alternative requires your gadget to be connected to the Internet, either using a data connection or a Wi-Fi network. Likewise, your handset needs to have enough battery charge to perform the backup process perfectly.
