Transferring Data To Smartphones From Major Android Makers Will Be Easier: Reports

Even after multiple OS releases, switching between top Android smartphones continues to be a hassle-free experience. You can easily migrate your Google Account and its associated data between devices, but that’s not the case because not all third-party apps support data migration. According to the latest reports, a tie-up between Chinese Android makers Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi is happening, and making it easier to switch phones between these brands as third-party app data will also be supported.

Let us tell you that both Oppo and Vivo are owned by China’s BBK Electronics, which is the same firm that owns OnePlus and Realme phone companies. So we can expect this transferring data feature to make it to Realme and OnePlus smartphones.

As per the announcement on Weibo, these companies revealed that the migration tool (Transferring data)on their phones would be updated to support third-party app data transfer. So, the next time you switch between phones from Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi with this feature enabled, you can do so without worrying about losing app data or setting up all your third-party apps again.

Third-party app data transfer mainly works when switching between devices of the same brand. It doesn’t work when you switch phones from a different Android phone.

Moving on, this is not the first time three popular Android manufacturers from China have come together to provide a better end-user experience. Back in January 2020, Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi developed a unified file-sharing solution, allowing users to share files with phones made by these three firms. 

A month later, Huawei joined the three to form the Global Developer Service Alliance (GDSA), which allows developers to upload apps to Oppo, Xiaomi, and Vivo’s app stores simultaneously.
