Now, let’s understand each method in detail:
Method 1: Use Google Backup and Restore
The quickest and easiest way is to use Google Backup and Restore. Just backup your apps and app data to Google Drive on your old device, then restore them on your new one. Here’s how:
STEP 1 = On your old device, go to Settings > System > Backup and make sure “Back up to Google Drive” is turned on.
STEP 2 = Sign in to your new device with the same Google account and select the option to restore data from Google Drive.
STEP 3 = Choose the backup containing your apps, and voila!
Your apps and app data will appear on your new device.
Method 2: Use Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Direct
Another way to move apps from Android to Android is to use Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Direct. These are wireless technologies that allow you to send files between devices without using the internet. Here’s how to do it:
STEP 1 = Turn on Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Direct & Location on both devices.
STEP 2 = On your old device, go to Settings > Apps, select the app you want to transfer, tap Share, and choose Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Direct.
STEP 3 = Accept the file request on your new device, wait for the transfer to complete, and install the app.
Repeat this process for each app you want to transfer and that’s it! This is how you can easily move apps from Android to Android.
Method 3: Use a Third-Party App
If you want more control and flexibility over transferring apps from Android to Android, you can use a third-party app that specializes in this task. There are many such apps available on the Google Play Store, but one of the most popular ones is ShareIt. Here’s how to use it:
STEP 1 = On both devices, launch ShareIt and tap Send or Receive depending on which device is sending or receiving the apps.
STEP 2 = On the sending device, select the apps that you want to transfer and tap Send.
STEP 3 = On the receiving device, tap Receive and wait for the connection request from the sending device.
STEP 4 = Accept it and wait for the transfer to finish.
Once the transfer is done, tap on each app file and install it on your receiving device.
Method 4: Use a PC or Mac
The last method that I will show you is to send apps from Android to Android using a PC or Mac. This workaround may take longer than the others, but it can be useful if you have a lot of apps or if you don’t have access to a wireless connection. Here’s how to do it:
STEP 1 = On your old device, go to Settings > Developer options and enable USB debugging.
If you don’t see Developer options, go to Settings > About phone and tap Build number seven times to unlock it.
STEP 2 = Connect your old device to your PC or Mac using a USB cable.
You may need to install some drivers or software to make your device recognizable by your computer.
STEP 3 = On your computer, open File Explorer and navigate to the folder where your apps are stored.
This may vary depending on your device model and manufacturer, but it is usually located in Internal storage > Android > data or Internal storage > Android > obb.
STEP 4 = Now, copy the folders that contain your apps and app data to your computer.
You can also use backup software such as [Right Backup] or [MobileTrans] to make this process easier.
STEP 5 = At this step, you can disconnect your old device from your computer and connect your new device. Make sure that USB debugging is enabled on your new device as well.
STEP 6 = On your computer, paste the folders that you copied from your old device to the same location on your new device. You may need to overwrite some existing folders if they have the same name.
That’s it! You should see all your apps and app data on your new device.
Effortlessly Sync Your Apps Across Multiple Android Devices
Transferring apps from Android to Android can be done in various ways depending on your preference and situation. You don’t have to worry about losing your apps and app data when you switch to a new Android device. Moreover, you can also share your apps with your friends or family members who have different Android devices.
I personally use the Google Backup & Restore method to send apps from Android to Android. I hope this blog post has helped you learn how to transfer apps from Android to Android easily and quickly.
