How To Setup Your Device – Android Lollipop
When you first turn on your phone or tablet, you’ll see a Welcome screen. Choose the language you want and touch the arrow to continue.
Note: To complete the setup process, it’s best to have a Wi-Fi connection.
When prompted, sign in with your Google Account or create one at that time. Signing in lets you immediately access everything associated with your Google Account, like Gmail. If you prefer, you can skip this step and create an account later.
Note: If you have another Android device, Tap & Go lets you quickly set up a new device just by tapping it to your other one. Any Google Accounts and apps that were already backed up will automatically be copied over to the new device.
An email address that you use for any of the following counts as a Google Account:
- Google Play
- Google Apps
- Any other Google product
Signing in with a Google Account helps you get up and running quickly. When you sign in, you can easily get all the apps you’ve purchased on Google Play onto your new device. All the email, contacts, calendar events, and other data associated with that account are automatically synced with your device.
For example, if you change a friend’s phone number on your phone, that change also appears on your tablet and on any computers where you’re signed in to your Google Account.
If you have multiple Google Accounts, you can add others later from Settings > Personal > Accounts. You can also add guest users in Settings > Device > Users.
