Step By Step Guide On How To Restore Backups From Google Drive

If you have ever backed up your Android device to Google Drive, then you might be wondering how to restore those backups. In this guide, we will show you step by step how to restore backups from Google Drive on your Android device.

About Google Drive

Before we begin, it is worth noting that there are two types of backups that can be stored on Google Drive: device backups and app data backups. Device backups are created automatically by Android and include things like your contacts, call history, and text messages. App data backups, on the other hand, are created by individual apps and only include data from that app.


To restore a device backup, all you need to do is factory reset your device and then sign in with the same Google account that you used to create the backup. Android will then automatically restore your device from the backup.

Restoring an app data backup is a bit more complicated, but still relatively easy to do. First, you will need to install the app that created the backup on your new device. Then, open the app and sign in with the same Google account that you used to create the backup. The app will then prompt you to restore from a backup. Just select the backup that you want to restore and hit the “Restore” button.

PS4 and PS5 compatibility will allow you to continue playing your favorite games from your current console

When the PlayStation 5 launches in Holiday 2020, it will be backward compatible with a large library of PS4 games. That means you’ll be able to play your favorite PS4 games on your PS5 console. Sony has confirmed that almost all PS4 games will be compatible with the PS5, with a few exceptions. Games that require the use of the PS4’s camera, such as Just Dance, won’t work on the PS5. Additionally, any games that use PS4-specific hardware, such as the PlayStation VR headset, won’t be compatible with the PS5.

Other than those exceptions, though, almost all PS4 games will work on the PS5. That includes first-party Sony exclusives like God of War, Spider-Man, and The Last of Us Part II, as well as popular third-party games like Red Dead Redemption 2, Mortal Kombat 11, and Fallout 76.
