Google One's cloud storage will now automatically save photos, videos, messages and contacts from your Android device, the company said Thursday. So if you lose, break or change your phone, all your information will be safely backed up. 

Automatic phone backup will also let you save original quality photos, videos and multimedia messages. You can manage backups from the Google One app. If you're setting up a new Android phone, you're now able to easily restore important content and information.

Google One went live last year, offering paid storage options ranging from 100GB to 30TB.
