How to Back Up Your SMS in Android

Make Tech Easier
If you erased all your messages either by accident or you cleared out your inbox for some space and want your texts back, you might not be able to do that on Android if you didn’t create a backup.

It’s possible to retrieve them from messaging and SMS apps and services like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, as these sync messages to the cloud. However, for some Android devices, this isn’t possible because it doesn’t include backing up text messages. The exception is Google Pixel and other Android Oreo-powered devices that have a built-in SMS backup feature.

Thankfully, though, you can back up your SMS in Android and keep them for use later, like when you want to switch to a new device and move with them. Similarly, if you factory reset your phone, all your text messages will be deleted, but with a backup, you can restore them once the device is ready to be used again.
