IANS  |  San Francisco 

is rolling out the ability to initiate manual backups to Drive -- that does not need the usually recommended -- on devices including the older ones, a media report said.

Previously, for backups, a had to be connected to a network and the device would have to in the charging mode. Because of this, if a handset lost its ability to charge or could not connect to the Wi-Fi, users were unable to back their data up on Drive.

"According to user who spotted the feature. it seems a new 'Back up now' button is beginning to appear in the settings of devices of all kinds -- the feature is available on '2' and also on some older devices like a 'Droid Turbo' from 2014 running on Marshmallow," 9T05Google reported on Friday.

"The capability was always there, hiding in the depths of Android, with the possibility to manually trigger backups from a command prompt," the report added.

The release of the manual-feature was first speculated in August.
