Google is rolling out the ability to initiate manual backups to Google Drive — that does not need the usually recommended Wi-Fi — on Android devices including the older ones, a media report said.
Google Drives helps you to backup your information like text message,app data, contact and call history on your android smartphone.
Though there have never been a possibility for manual backup of your data. It only automatically backup to driver when they are plugged into a charger or connected to Wi-Fi.
According to a tweet posted by 9to5google reader, a new option in the backup setting now allows users to manually initiate a Google Drive backup. this feature was promised to arrive on August 2018 but never showed up until now. This new option will make it easier to backup your data properly before trading your phone or even before performing a factory reset.
It looks like the option is gradually rolling out to more device via Google Play Service – it doesn’t require an OTA update.
