Restoring backups saved to Google Drive

Google changes Google Drive behavior from time to time. In the current version we have to use the rightmost “folder” icon to see your folder structure with the backup files (1).

You can select one or more backup files [BubbleCloud*.zip] in Google Drive, tap the 3-dot menu icon (2), make sure to use the option “Send a copy” (3) to be able to import [using “Bubble Cloud Import”] (4)


If the “Import Bubble Cloud” share target does not appear for Bubble Cloud ZIP files, enable the new option “Relaxed restore handler for backups” under:

  • Widget Preferences → Expert → Preferences
  • Wear OS → More options
