Clash of Clans is finally available on Android, and it's great news if you're a fan of the game. If you've recently moved to an Android device, however, you may be worried about syncing your progress from iOS to Android! Lucky for you, you don't have to worry too much: below is our tutorial that'll help you easily transfer your saved Clash of Clans game from your iPhone or iPad to your Android phone or tablet.
1. Go to the tutorial
In order to sync accounts, you need to go through the tutorial. Open the Clash of Clans app on your Android device and go to the tutorial. The village should look something like this:
Start the account synchronization process from iOS to Android by opening Settings, in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
2. Connect with Google+
To load a Clash of Clans game on your Android device that's saved on your iPhone or iPad, you must link your account to Google+. Click on the 'Disconnected' button beside Google+ Sign-In and, if necessary, sign in.
3. Select Privacy Settings
Once opened, scroll down the page and select the privacy options. You can choose to keep your game activity private or make it publicly visible to those in your Google+ circles.
4. Configure your Android device
The next step is connecting devices. Once you're back in Settings, click on Devices and then click 'Link a device'.
On the next screen, select 'This is the NEW DEVICE'.
At this point, you'll be asked to enter a code. You'll need to get this code from your iOS device, so leave this screen open on your Android phone or tablet.
5. Configure your iOS device
Open Clash of Clans on your iPhone or iPad. Again, go to the settings menu by accessing the icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Select Devices and then 'Link a device'.
Once again, click on 'This is the NEW DEVICE'.
On the next screen, click 'I want to link to another device'.
6. Generate the connection code
Clash of Clans on your iOS device will generate a unique code that you'll need to input in the window you've left open on your Android device.
7. Enter the code on your Android device
Once you enter the code on Android, you only have five minutes before the code becomes invalid. Note: as the disclaimer warns, the link will be permanent.
Once you've entered the code correctly, your iOS game will sync with your Android device. Click 'Okay', and your saved Clash of Clans game will be ready to play on Android!
The game will automatically sync between both devices so that you can play on either device, just not at the same time!
Clash of Clans has had great success on iOS. We'll see if the Android version is as successful, but in the meantime, you can enjoy your hard work and progress on either your iOS and Android device!
