This week Google launched a new “Switch to Android” app on iOS, which is designed to make it easier for iPhone users to switch to an Android device.

switch to android google
As noted before Take CrunchGoogle launched the app on Monday in the US and several other markets, but without much fanfare. The app promises to help users transfer important data securely, quickly and wirelessly.

Google already maintains a Switch to Android website with instructions for switching, but the app should make it even easier. ‌iPhone‌ to Android switches can switch between photos, videos, contacts, and calendar events, plus Google provides instructions for turning off iMessage and transferring photos and videos from iCloud.

Apple has its own rival website designed for Android users who want to switch to the ‌iPhone‌, along with a dedicated Go to iOS app that moves contacts, message history, photos, videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts, and calendars. The Apple app works just like the Google app, with wireless data transfer capabilities.
