Google is planning to make eSIM transfer easier on Android, here’s how

eSIMs, slowly, but steadily gaining popularity. Apple made the entire iPhone 14 series lineup sold in US eSIM only. Now, Google is taking a step forward with the entire eSIM idea and is reportedly making it easier for users to transfer eSIM from one device to another.
Google has already announced, earlier this year, that it is working on an eSIM transfer feature that will allow users move eSIMs from one device to another natively. Right now, there’s no way to move eSIMs between two devices and that leaves users with only the option to disable the eSIM from one device and activate it again on another device and that requires telecom service provider’s support and good luck with that.
QR code system is supposed to get implemented
Anyhow, the native eSIM transfer support allows users to move eSIM from one device to another natively based on QR codes. As per the report, the new system will ask users to scan a QR code to initiate the entire eSIM transfer process. The report mentions that the next steps are currently not available as the feature isn’t live right now.
When the feature is expected to arrive
Well, there’s no official timeline announced by the company as of now. And, we also don’t know if the upcoming Android 14 will include this feature in the first rollout phase. But, previous rumours suggest that it could become a part of Pixel smartphone’s setup process which makes sense. Eventually, Google could also make this standard through the Android ecosystem.
How this will make things easier for users
Google’s forthcoming native eSIM transfer feature, employing QR codes, promises user-friendly convenience. Currently, transferring eSIMs between devices can be cumbersome. This innovation streamlines the process, eliminating reliance on telecom providers and simplifying the activation process. Its introduction, potentially with Pixel smartphones, aims to enhance user experience within the Android ecosystem.
