Will Texts and Photos in Texts Transfer to a New Phone?

Environment

Answer

Texts and photos in text messages do not automatically sync with Google or transfer to a new device. A photo from a text will need to be saved from the phone to sync with Google or transfer. Texts can be backed up and transferred using third-party apps available in the Play Store.
