@darnell you can export to one or more qr codes (Settings > Transfer accounts) and directly scan them into your new phone. You aren't allowed to screenshot them for later which is irritating but I guess makes sense. But if you don't have both phones then yes it is a hassle.
Authy solves this, but I like the simplicity of Google Authenticator.
