New animations for Pixel tablets are added to the Android data recovery tool

Share This Post

When setting up a new Android device — with the exception of brands like Samsung that have their own way to copy data — Google’s Data Restore Tool makes it straightforward and easy to copy messages, apps, and more from another Android phone. And, with the recent launch of the Switch to Android app on iOS, Data Restore Tool can also copy over that same data from an iPhone.

In front of the impending Pixel tablet, Google has upgraded Android’s Data Restore Tool with a number of new animations. Regarding APK Insight: We’ve decompiled the most recent version of an app that Google put on the Play Store in our “APK Insight” post. These files, known as APKs for Android apps, can be disassembled to reveal several lines of code that allude to potential future features. Remember that Google might or might not ever deploy these features, and our understanding of what they are might be limited. However, we’ll endeavour to make those that are nearly finished show you how they’ll seem in the event that they do ship. Read on with that in mind.


  • While these animations have simple, generic names like “copying_animation_tablet,” a closer inspection reveals that each one contains the codename “Tangor.” We’ve previously reported that Tangor is the internal codename for Google’s Pixel tablet, set to release next year. From this, we gather that the new animations were designed with the intention of being used with the Pixel tablet. That said, an inspection of the app’s code reveals that the Data Restore Tool will show these same animations on any device with a screen DPI of at least 600, meaning they’re not exclusive to the Pixel tablet. er for 9to5Google, with special interests in Made by Google products, Fuchsia, and Stadia.

  • This week, a new Data Restore Tool update began rolling out via the Play Store, bringing it to version 1.0.455404737. Inside the update, we’ve found six new animations that the app will show when you’re copying data onto a new Android tablet. The main difference in these animations, in comparison to the existing ones, is that the one of the devices shown is resized to look like a tablet rather than a phone. The animations are also meant to flow together, and as such, we’ve stitched them together to see that in action.
