🏷️How to Move Photos from Android to Android Without Computer

Transferring photos from one Android device to another without the use of a computer can be achieved through various methods. These methods are convenient for moving photos between Android devices without the need for cables.

Method 1. Bluetooth

For wireless transfer, using Bluetooth technology to transfer files between two Android devices is probably the easiest way. From this aspect, both devices must have Bluetooth enabled and be paired with each other. And you can also transfer photos from Android to iPhone via Bluetooth. However, please note that Bluetooth transmission has a limit on the number of files that can be transmitted at one time. So if you have a lot of photos to transfer, using Bluetooth may be time-consuming.

📝Note: Because of the compression used during the transfer process, the quality of the transferred photos may be diminished. And the transfer speed is relatively slow.

Here are the steps to share photos from one Android to another with Bluetooth.

Step 1. Head to "Settings" on both your Android phones and turn on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Step 2. Choose the photos you want to move and initiate the transfer process by taping the "Share" icon and then the "Bluetooth" option.

Step 3. Clicking the Android phone you'd like to transfer the photos to and match your both devices. Once the transfer is complete, your photos can be accessed on another phone.

Method 2. Google Photos

Google Photos is a cloud-based service that allows users to store and share their photos and videos with others. It offers advanced features such as search and automatic backup. Google Photos lets users manage and browse photos through its website and mobile apps with the same Google account. Therefore, it has become an effective way to share photos between Android devices by using Google Photos.

Here are the steps for you to use Google Photos:

Step 1. Download the Google Photos app on both your Android phones and sign in with your Google account.

Step 2. Open Google Photos on your old Android and turn on "Backup and Sync" to upload your photos.

Step 3. Launch Google Photos on your new Android and open "Backup and Sync." Then you can view all the photos that are synced on your new phone.

You also have the option to select the photos you want to transfer and upload them to your Google Photos account. Then you just log in to your Google Photos account on the second device and download the photos.

Method 3. Dropbox

Dropbox is also a popular cloud-based storage service that helps users store and share files with others. It offers a range of features, including file sharing and syncing across devices with an internet connection. With Dropbox, you can transfer data from Android to Android wirelessly. You need to move your photos to another Android by uploading them to Dropbox with the same account.

Step 3. Open Dropbox on the targeted Android and log into your Dropbox account to access and download the photos.

Method 4. Nearby Share

Do you know Nearby Share? It is an amazing feature that enables users to share files between Android devices via the NFC (Near Field Communication) protocol. By Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology, Nearby Share establishes a connection between devices and allows users to share content. It is also a secure and private way to share content, as users can set their visibility to prevent unwanted sharing.

📝Note: To use the Nearby Share feature, you need to ensure your devices run on Android 6.0 or higher.

Follow the steps to share photos via Nearby Share:

Step 1. Make sure both your Android phones are within close proximity to each other.

Method 5. Email

Finally, we introduce a simple wireless method to transfer photos. If you only have a small number of photos, you can transfer photos as attachments from Android to Android via Email. However, due to email attachment size restrictions, this approach might not be appropriate for transferring a large number of photos or high-resolution images. Additionally, compressing the images before adding them to the email is advised to minimize file size and guarantee speedy transmission.

🎈The file size restrictions of some email service providers are listed below:

Email Services File Size Limits
Gmail 25MB
Outlook 20MB
Yahoo Mail 25MB
ProtonMail 25MB
Hotmail 10MB
Zoho Mail 20MB

To transfer photos from one Android device to another using Email, follow these steps:

Step 1. Go to the app containing the photos on your Android. Select the photos you want to send and tap the "Share" icon.

Step 2. Choose Email from the sharing options and enter your email address. Then send the email to yourself.
