Here is a brief guide to properly set up a android tablet, either new or factory reset. Make sure you have a working Wi-Fi network and its password.
Please note that manufacturers who install the Android operating system on their tablets may make some changes to the setup process as well as the use of the software.
But in general, the setup steps differ little from those shown here.
At first startup, the setup procedure starts and a welcome window appears where you can choose the system language. Once done, tap Start.
Then comes the connection to your Wi-Fi network, search for it among the networks detected by the tablet, select it and write your password. If your tablet is a 4G or 5G cellular model with a SIM card, you can use this connection as long as your internet data plan is high enough to download any updates.
The next step is to transfer apps and data from another tablet or phone if this is the case and follow the instructions. Don’t copy them if you want a completely blank tablet.
Google account or not?
There is the famous question of having or not having a Google account, which allows you to install and buy applications and games from the Google Play store. Without this account, the use of the tablet becomes very limited.
If you create a new account, all ad tracking features will be enabled by default. I suggest that you open a new Google account in your favorite browser on your computer and review the activities to disable. You will find more information on this at the end of this text.
Once your Google account is set up to your preferences, continue setting up your tablet’s Android software by entering your Google ID and password.
After that, enable or disable additional Google account services like Google Drive online data storage, etc. Then tap OK.
Then comes the option to turn Google Assistant on or off for your dictated searches or questions, using the Hey Google voice command. Override if you prefer to set it later or never.
Security and unlock
You will be presented with several options to secure your tablet access; password, PIN code, screen pattern, fingerprint or facial recognition. The last two methods are the most secure, an option you can change at any time once setup is complete.
Your tablet is now ready to use.
Future Pixel tablets made by google in 2023?
The tablet market has always been more successful for third-party manufacturers, with the exception of Google, which pulled its Pixel Slate and Pixel C tablets from the market a few years ago.
But, according to various specialized sites, the Internet advertising giant could return with a Pixel tablet equipped with the Tensor house chip next year. This would run on Android 13 and complement the hardware offering of the Pixel smartphones and the new Pixel Watch watches.
