Google has finally launched the Switch to Android app on the App Store. As the name suggests, it is an app that will help iPhone users to switch to an Android smartphone.
There have been several years of waiting for Google to make available its own app that would help with the transition between operating systems. Now, finally, there is an official app available for all Apple smartphone users.
Switch to Android is Google’s tool to migrate data from iPhone to Android
In 2021, Google announced the development of a tool that would help any iPhone user switch to an Android smartphone. The purpose is to simplify the change from Apple’s ecosystem to Google’s.
A much needed app is finally available for Download via the App Store. It was made available without much fanfare, without the need to get official contact from Google about it.
In fact, the availability of this tool in the Apple App Store is quite intriguing. In addition to the fact that Google has not officially announced its official availability, the application still cannot be found by searching the App Store.
This means that you will have to access Switch to Android directly via the link above. At the moment, it is the only known way to find this app on any Apple device.
How does switching to Android work
With this application, iPhone users receive an official tool that will facilitate the transition to the Android ecosystem. Through this application, you can copy contacts, messages, videos, photos and calendar without complications.
This information will be copied to the Google Drive app on your iPhone. This way, when you sign in to your new Android smartphone, all the saved data will be synced to the new device.
Thanks to the Switch to Android app, there is no need to connect both smartphones by cable, or even put them in the same place. Everything will be done through an Internet connection, although it is recommended to use Wi-Fi.
The rest of this data migration tool are the apps. This means that users will have to manually reinstall their favorite apps on their new Android smartphones.
