Moving data from your old phone to a new Android phone could get a lot faster


When you get a new Android phone, there are various ways that you can use to transfer data from your old phone to your new one. You can opt to restore it from the cloud, which depending on how much data could take a while. You can also opt to use a cable or a wireless connection. But it seems that a future update of Android could make moving data a lot faster.

According to a report from Android Authority, they were tipped off to this new feature from AssembleDebug. Basically it sounds like Google could offer users a new way of moving data from an old Android phone to a new one by merging existing transfer methods. The APK teardown reveals a string that reads, “Copying using cable and Wi-Fi for fastest speed”.

This suggests that this new method combines the cable and WiFi method into a single one. It will allow users to transfer data from an older device to a new one using both WiFi and a cable connection. This should, in theory, help to speed up the overall transfer progress. We’re not sure how much faster this new method will be over existing methods. But like we said, in theory it should be faster.

This is because users will now have access to two data streams. Maybe the cable connection could be used to transfer larger files, while the wireless transfer could work for smaller files, both happening simultaneously.
