Now with automatic phone backup, we’re taking another step in helping you keep the stuff you care about safe.”, wrote Google in a blog post.
The automatic phone backup feature will be initially available for Android devices and may extend to iOS devices as well. This feature will be extremely helpful in cases where you accidentally break your smartphone or your phone gets stolen. We all have been there and it hurts to lose all the precious memories gathered in phones, to be honest. Take a look at the below GIF to see how the feature works.
