Change to Backups by Google will allow you to more granularly select items on your phone to back up, including MMS as well as SMS texts. Currently, items like MMS, photos, videos, and wallpapers would be synced by a different app, depending on which phone you are using.
What will change:
- Backups by Google One is replacing your existing Android system backup method.
- This update will be rolling out “over the coming weeks” to Android phones and will happen in the background .
- Backed-up items now include MMS, photos, videos, wallpapers, several system settings, and more.
- You still don’t need to be a paid subscriber to Google One, but you will need to stay under the 15GB limit, though.
