Google has a secret iOS app that helps you switch to Android

Google has quietly released a free app for iOS that helps you easily transfer data from an iPhone to an Android device, as reported by 9to5Google. Switch to the Android app works wirelessly, which means you do not have to worry about connecting the two phones with a cable.

“Switching to the Android app from Google helps you quickly and securely move your most important data types – photos, videos, contacts and calendar events – to a brand new Android device without the hassle of cables,” according to the app’s description in the App Store. This list does not include messages, so it looks like the app will not be able to upload them, though it will guide you through how to turn off iMessage so that “you do not miss text messages from friends and family. “

9to5Google says this is an unlisted app and it seems to be the case as i can not find it when I search the App Store on my iPhone. However, you can download it right now from this direct link. Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment on when the app could be officially listed in the App Store.

Apple has been offering a similar app to help users migrate from Android to iPhone, called “Move to iOS”, since 2015.
