How to Backup Android Apps to Google Drive – In this article, we will show you how to backup Android apps to Google Drive if something bad happens or something you don't know about in the future.

Sometimes, factory data wipe is required in our phones for various reasons. Or there is also a smartphone that has been misplaced so that it loses all data, including installed application data.

In application Else, the app's latest update throws a bunch of errors, prompting us to roll back to the previous version.

We need the raw file to reinstall the previous version of the app (.apk). So that's the need for us to make backups of every application installed on our cellphones.

How to Backup All Android Apps to Google Drive

we used to back up apps using 'App Backup & Restore'. When we use this app, we backup Android apps to our SD card and then restore them if backup.

Installing system apps on another phone is possible even with this tool as it allows you to backup default Android apps, also known as system apps.

So, by using App Backup & Restore, we can also save application backup files to Google Drive.

That's what we mean. Actually backing up programs to external storage memory (SD card) is sufficient. But to anticipate if our SD card is damaged, we still have another backup file on Google Drive.

In addition, if the number of applications that we back up is large and we put them on the memory card, the memory card capacity will fill up quickly. So we need Google Drive so we can delete backup files on SD card.

  1. First you download 'App Backup & Restore' from the Play Store, then open the application
  2. On the application's home page, select the 'Google Drive' menu tab, then tap the 'Add Account' button.
  3. Next, a Google account box will appear

Once you have selected an account, tap the 'Ok' text sign.

  1. Wait a few seconds, an access permission request box will appear, then tap the 'Allow' sign

Wait until your Google account is connected to App Backup & Restore, then close or exit App Backup & Restore
