What is Google Data Restore Tool and How to Use it

If you are reading this, you probably want to make a switch to a new phone, like from an iOS to an Android phone, and don’t want to lose your data. Fortunately for you, there is a very simple way for you to achieve that.

Most Android devices have a Google Data Restore Tool. This helps you to transfer data to the new phone. How much do you know about the Google Data Restore Tool?

In this post today, we will discuss how to use the Google Data Restore Tool for data restoration.

Let’s get started.

What is Data Restore Tool?

First, let’s discuss what the data restore tool is. This is an app that allows you to copy data from the old phone to the new one you have purchased. It provides a simple and direct way for you to copy data to your brand-new phone. You don’t have to start from scratch.

Normally, this phone is found in most Android phones. However, if yours doesn’t have the app, you can now download it from the Google Play Store.

How to Use the Google Data Restore Tool

Choose one of two ways that work. The first one makes use of a cable, while the other uses a Wi-Fi connection. We’ll look at both.

Using a Cable

USB-C cables

Start by powering on the new Android phone and start the setup. In the setup, you will be asked whether you want to copy apps and data. Tap Next

The next screen asks if you want to use the old device. If you do, you will need to turn the old device on and leave it unlocked. The next step involves connecting the phones using a cable. Recent phones use USB-C cables. If you do not have a cable, you should tap on ‘no cable’, which will take you to the next step that involves using a Wi-Fi network.

After you plug your cable into the old phone, tap ‘Next’. Then, connect the other end to the new phone and the process will begin immediately. You will need to approve the connection on the old phone for the data to be copied. A passcode will allow you to do that.

After the devices are connected, you will be prompted to sign in to your account, after which you will be able to choose the data and apps you want to copy to your new phone.

The process of using a Wi-Fi network is similar. The only difference is the use of a cable.

Google one

Without a cable, Google Data Restore Tool recommends the use of Google One. After downloading Google One on your iPhone, you should set up a data backup. You can select any type of data to sync including media, contacts, and more. Here’s how to access my Google backup data.

Google One will help you access the backed-up data through the new phone. After accessing it through the new phone, you will be all set.


So, what is Data Restore Tool? This app allows you to change phones without losing your data. With this simple tool, you will not need to start from scratch once you get a new phone. You can download it from Google Play Store if you do not have it on your phone.
