The Android smartphone market is getting more populated every day, and with so many affordable options, the option to upgrade is not something you really need to think about. But when you bring in a new device to replace your older variant, the first thing you want to do is transfer all your content and contacts to the new smartphone so that you don’t have to set everything up from scratch.

Earlier, this process was slightly cumbersome and usually required a dedicated app to get things done. If the app misbehaved at the last minute, all the data was lost. Thankfully, the transfer of critical data like apps, contacts, messages, and photos can now be transferred from one Android device to another using just your Google account.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to transfer contacts from Android to Android.

First, let’s set things up on the old Android device.

Step 1. Open the ‘Settings‘ on your Android device.


Step 2. Tap on the ‘Accounts and Sync‘ option from the settings menu.



Step 3. Tap on the ‘Accounts‘ option.



Step 4. Head to your existing Google accounts and make sure the sync options are all ticked.



By doing this, all the contacts you have saved on your device will get synced with your Google account.

Now, let’s bring those contacts to your new Android device.

Step 1. Begin the setup procedure on your new Android device.
