Switch to Android

Google launches ‘Switch to Android’ app on iOS

Google has quietly launched its “Switch to Android” app to the iOS App Store. The app is currently unlisted, and the only way to access it is by going directly to the store page.

Google already has a website for switching from iOS to Android but the process is mostly manual and requires you to use Google Drive to backup your files, and it doesn’t transfer things directly from iCloud.

The new app does, however, with a guided process for exporting all of your important data. That includes instructions to turn off iMessage so you don’t miss messages, and a connector to iCloud so Google can automatically migrate your photo and video library to Google Photos.

It’s worth noting that the Switch to Android app isn’t available to download at this time, so maybe the App Store listing is a placeholder ahead of an official announcement.
