According to a report, Google is changing Android Backup to "Backup by Google One".

Points Highlighted:

  • Along with the Google One dedicated app and the website, Android users will be able to back up their data to Google One service from within the backup settings on their phone. The report adds that the ‘Backup by Google One’ option will come with settings to enable or disable backing up of MMS messages as well as photos and videos. It is expected to be available for all Google accounts as they get 15GB free storage.

  • Google introduced the Google One unified backups app back in May 2018 that gave users more storage at lower prices. Aside from the standard Android backup system that includes app data, call history, contacts, SMS, and device preferences, Google One allows users to also back up their photos, videos, and MMS messages. Now, according to a report by 9to5Google, Android is getting a new ‘Backup by Google One’ option that will bring the unified backup functionality right in the Settings.
