Google has quietly released a free iOS app to help you easily transfer iPhone data to your Android device, according to 9to5Google. The Switch To Android app works wirelessly, which means you don’t have to worry about connecting both phones with a cable.
“Google’s Switch to Android app helps you quickly and securely move your most important data types – photos, videos, contacts and calendar events – to a brand new Android device without complicated cables,” according to the app’s app description. This list does not include messages, so it looks like the app won’t be able to transfer them, although it will show you how to turn off iMessage so you don’t “miss text messages from friends and family.”
9to5Google says this is not an announced app and it seems to be so as I can’t find it when I search the App Store on my iPhone. However, you can download it immediately from this direct link. Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment on when the app could be officially listed on the App Store.

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