"My Pixel 2 served me well. The battery seems as good as on day one, and the phone is almost as smooth as it was new. But after four years and no updates this year, it is time to upgrade. My new phone should be delivered today. Can someone spot me a link to the best way to migrate settings, Nova settings, WhatsApp, chat, messages, contacts, phone history, etc., to my Pixel 6 Pro? Google One does a phone backup each day, but I am not sure if that backs up everything I need."

Way 1. How to Transfer from Old Pixel to New Pixel During Setup via Quick Switch Adapter

Quick Switch Adapter is Google's way to copy data from Pixel to Pixel. Note that the Pixel data transfer tool is pre-installed on your Google Pixel phone, and you don't need to install it manually. However, there are files you can and cannot transfer during setup.

What you can transfer:

  • Apps & app data
  • Google accounts
  • Contacts on your phone or SIM card
  • Photos, music, and videos
  • Call history
  • SMS and multimedia texts
  • Phone settings
  • Wallpapers

What you cannot transfer:

  • Photos, music, and videos in hidden folders
  • Apps not from Google Play Store
  • App data don't use Android backup
  • Account rather than Google accounts and their data
  • Downloaded files, like PDF
  • Ringtones
  • Contacts and calendars synced to other services rather than Google
  • Certain phone settings

Before you start, make sure the following things as well:

  • Your Pixel phones are fully charged.
  • The adapter and USB cable comes with your Pixel phone.
  • A stable Wi-Fi network
  • A SIM card pin
  • A valid Google account

To transfer from Pixel to Pixel:

1. Ensure that the old Pixel phone has been updated to the latest version.

2. Power on your new Pixel phone and tap the Get Started option. Then remove the SIM card from your old device and insert it into the new phone.

3. Connect your new Pixel phone to a stable Wi-Fi or mobile network. Later, tap Next on the Copy apps & data screen and turn on your old Pixel phone.

4. Use the USB cable and the adapter to connect both phones. Next, ensure your Google account password on your new Pixel phone and tap Sign in.

5. Uncheck the files you don't want to transfer and press the Copy button below.
