You can now back up your Android phone from the Google One app

Google on Thursday announced that Google One, its premium cloud storage service, will soon let you back up your device to the cloud from the app.

The addition will let users with a One membership, the One app installed, and Android smartphone automatically store a backup of their device data online.

This includes photos and videos at the original recorded quality, MMSes, and device data.

While Google already backs up device data (15GB’s worth) to your Google Cloud, One does give users between 100GB and 3TB of additional data depending on your subscription tier.

Should you purchase a new Android smartphone, that data will be restored to your new device if you wish.

In that respect, it’s pretty useful for those rocking flagship smartphones sans microSD card slots.

Overall, it’s a welcome addition to the cloud storage service, which debuted back in May 2018.
