Introducing the OnePlus Switch

    Gary C., Jan 3, 2018 :


    We are happy to announce our new migration app, the OnePlus Switch [Google Play Store Link]. Since a lot of you are joining our family, we wanted to make the transition a little easier.

    With the OnePlus Switch app, you can transfer all your files to your new OnePlus phone in a single, simple process. Install Switch app on your new phone and your previous device to start the migration process. From there, all you have to do is scan the QR code to pair and choose which items you want to transfer.

    Currently, you can transfer: Contacts, Messages, Call Logs, Photos, Videos, Audio and applications (without data). We are already working on new updates for more support - such as Wi-Fi history, Camera settings, Apps data, and more.

    One of our goals for OxygenOS is an easy-to-use software experience. The OnePlus Switch app is our first iteration, only for devices running Android 6.0 or higher. Future updates will offer support for older versions and iOS.

    Your opinions will help contribute to improved features in the upcoming releases. Keep an eye for updates and let us know in the comments your first impressions!

    Never Settle.

    Great App, will be useful, specially after you add the feature to transfer app with its data, eg. Whatsapp, BBM, etc with its data.

    This will enable seamless transition from old Oneplus to new models and also help first time OnePlus users!

    Glad to see this sort of things coming. :) Android is a great software, but it's still behind Apple on the backup possibilities and switch for new devices, so its nice to see that you are trying to fix it on your own. :)

    Great work!
    If it works safe & reliable, i can recommend OP-devices to other people better.
    And if there are more supported devices, server-side, i can recommend it to more people.

    That's a Good app, thank you.

    It would be great if we have a option like send this op switch app to android/ iPhone devices without mobile data charges.......... sounds like a invite system.

    That's just my opinion. :)
