How To Transfer Photos From Android To Android

Android Apps

So, you’ve just gotten a new Android phone and you’re excited to transfer all your precious photos from your old one. I remember when I got my new Android phone, I couldn’t wait to have all my memories on there. Whether you’re switching from an older Android device or an entirely different platform, transferring photos is a crucial step in making the new phone feel like home.

Gathering Your Photos

The first step in the process is to ensure that all your photos are backed up and easily accessible for transfer. I highly recommend using a cloud storage service such as Google Photos. It’s free, and the app can automatically back up all your photos and videos. Plus, it makes them easily accessible from any device with an internet connection.

Step 1: Install Google Photos

If you don’t already have it, go to the Google Play Store and download the Google Photos app on your current phone. Once installed, open the app and sign in with your Google account. Make sure the backup and sync feature is turned on to upload all your photos to the cloud.

Step 2: Wait for Uploads

Depending on the number of photos and your internet speed, this may take some time. I remember waiting for what felt like forever for all my photos to upload, but it’s worth the wait for the peace of mind knowing your memories are safely stored in the cloud.

Transferring to the New Phone

Once all your photos are safely backed up in the cloud, it’s time to transfer them to your new Android phone. If you’re signed in with the same Google account on your new phone, the photos should automatically sync to the Google Photos app.

Step 3: Setting Up the New Phone

When setting up your new phone, make sure to sign in with the same Google account that you used to back up your photos. This will ensure that all your photos are accessible and ready for download on the new device.

Step 4: Download and Access Photos

Once your new phone is set up and connected to the internet, open the Google Photos app. Your photos should start to sync and download to the new device. It’s such a relief to see all your memories appearing on your new phone!


Voila! With your photos now on your new Android phone, you can relive all those special moments and share them with friends and family. Transferring photos from one Android device to another may seem daunting, but with cloud storage options like Google Photos, it’s a seamless process. Now, go ahead and start creating new memories on your new device!
