Here’s how Android Settings change with Backup by Google One

Let’s go back to Backup by Google One, the new and updated version of the unified Android backup system, released by the Mountain View giant at the end of last month. As we learn from 9to5Google, the new system created by the Mountain View giant begins to be more widespread, thus making its features available to an ever-increasing number of users.

Once the new feature is available for your account, you can reach it by going to the Settings menu, then scrolling to the System section and selecting Backup, where a new page will be displayed with a bar indicating the amount of storage space Google One that you have.

By tapping the progress bar you can switch Google accounts while selecting Manage storage space opens the corresponding tab in the Google One app. On the page we also find an on and off switch to control the Backup by Google One with your current device and to view when the last upload was made, with the possibility of immediately making a new backup and viewing the related details the last backup performed.

We remind you that among the novelties of Backup by Google One there is the achievement of a new level, both in terms of unification (it allows, which is of no small importance, to control all the related functions directly in the Android settings instead of only with the Google One app or website) and in terms of completeness (the new backup system extends to include photos, videos and MMS messages as well).

The new Backup by Google One in Settings seems to be already widely distributed on devices with Android 10, 11 and 12 onboard.
