How Do I Transfer App Data From Android to Android via Bluetooth?

Android, Android Transfer

Are you getting a new Android device and want to transfer your app data from your old device? One convenient method to do this is by using Bluetooth. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of transferring app data from Android to Android via Bluetooth.

Step 1: Enable Bluetooth on both devices

Firstly, ensure that Bluetooth is enabled on both your old and new Android devices. To do this, go to the Settings menu on each device. Look for the Bluetooth option and toggle it on.

Step 2: Pair the devices

To transfer data between the devices, they need to be paired. On your old device, go to the Bluetooth settings and tap on “Pair new device.”

On your new device, search for available devices and select your old device from the list. Follow any prompts that appear on both devices to complete the pairing process.

Step 3: Select the apps with data to transfer

Once the devices are paired, open the settings of your old Android device and locate “Apps” or “Applications” in the menu. Tap on it to view a list of all installed apps.

Note: Not all apps allow their data to be transferred via Bluetooth. Some apps store their data in a format that cannot be easily shared between devices.

Option 1: App-specific backup

If an app supports its own backup feature, it is recommended to use it instead of transferring via Bluetooth. Many popular apps like WhatsApp, Google Drive, and Evernote offer built-in backup options that allow you to restore your data seamlessly on a new device.

Option 2: Manual transfer

If an app does not have its own backup feature, you can still transfer its data manually using Bluetooth. Select the app from the list of installed apps on your old device.

Step 4: Transfer the app data

On the app info page, look for the “Storage” or “Data usage” option. Tap on it to access the storage details of the app.

Within the storage details, you will find an option to clear data or clear cache. However, we do not recommend clearing data as it will erase all your app settings and user data.

Note: Clearing cache only removes temporary files and does not delete any important data. It is safe to clear cache if you want to free up some storage space on your old device.

To transfer the app data, tap on “Share” or “Send” within the storage details. Choose Bluetooth as the sharing method when prompted.

Step 5: Receive and restore the app data

On your new Android device, accept the incoming Bluetooth transfer request when prompted. The transferred file will be saved in a specific folder depending on your device’s file manager app.

To restore the transferred app data, locate and open your file manager app on the new device. Find and select the transferred file and choose to open it with the corresponding app that you want to restore data for.


  • If an app requires you to sign in or create an account, make sure you do so before attempting to restore its data.
  • The process of transferring and restoring app data may vary slightly depending on your Android device model and version of Android.

And that’s it! You have successfully transferred your desired app data from your old Android device to your new one using Bluetooth. Now you can continue using your favorite apps seamlessly on your new device without losing any important data.
