The full version of Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) was officially released by Krafton yesterday. Players can now download and play the full version of the game from the Google Play Store.

The developers also shared a notice with gamers and fans regarding the data transfer service.

Earlier, players were allowed to transfer their data, including past purchases and skins, from PUBG Mobile to BGMI. But now, Krafton will "temporarily" stop the data transfer feature.

Yesterday, Krafton, on its official website and social media, announced that the data transfer service would briefly be paused from July 6th.

Only players who have played the Livik map in PUBG Mobile will be eligible to transfer their account data to BGMI. The developers also affirmed that users who have moved their data would receive pre-registration rewards.

Here's what Krafton had to say concerning this issue:

"Dear BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA fans. Currently, Krafton is providing data transfer service in order to safely secure the data of fans from India. A maintenance will be proceeded upon the data transfer service; accordingly, we'd like to inform you that the transfer service will be temporarily shut down during the period indicated - July 6th - until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience upon temporary shutdown of the data transfer. Those who wish to transfer their data, please do so before July 6th."

The developers have not mentioned when or if the data transfer feature will be resumed. They have also not revealed why it is being stopped in the first place.

BGMI players are advised to perform their data transfer before the mentioned date to avoid any inconveniences.
