I don't think there's a need for that. After marshmallow google allows you to auto install your apps and setup you had on your previous device on that google account. Provided that backup data and apps setting is turned on. Unless you're referring to transferring media...

Yes. Media, texts, apps, etc.

I believe that the part of the new phone setup since MM includes importing SMS messages, contacts, call history and some other stuff. Are your devices rooted? If yes, you can use something like Titanium Backup for that
DDF A-Z Link Extension
Chrome
Firefox

For some reason my phone has stopped letting me know about Reminders I've saved. They're saved. It just doesn't notify me or come up in any way. Any thoughts?
Use this feature pretty often so would be super helpful if someone knew the fix.

Sorry, Tapatalk wasn't working here so I didn't get the notification that you replied. It's almost shabbos here so I'll answer you after shabbos. You can try to clear the cache on the Google app, or see if there's an update available. Let me know if that helps.

Clearing the cache didn't help and it's updated to latest version. Any other thoughts?
I never realized how often I use it.

Uninstall updates then reinstall. If that doesn't work I would clear data but that may erase what data you have. Also, if google is your home screen, clearing data will erase your whole homescreen setup.

Darn. Nothing is working. Not seeing any fixes online either. Not even sure what else to try.

Weird. Does your events get put in the Google calendar? Then you can try the above to calendars. I never put in events with Google...
