Google currently works on a new app to make it easier to switch to Android phones. Switch to Android allows users to transfer their apps and data to their new device. This app has been available for many years by Apple.
Local WiFi hotspots transfer data
9to5google explains that “Switch to Android” is supposed to transfer the most important data of the iPhone into the new Android smartphone. This can be seen in the “Data Restore Tool” version 1.0.382048734. ” Switch To Android” uses WiFi hotspots to establish a connection between devices.
There is an option to save the iPhone data on Google Drive, and then restore it on your Android device. This method cannot transfer apps, so switching to Android should be easier for most users. The tool can also be used to migrate contacts, SMS, or messages.
App Is Under Development
The new Google App isn’t yet available. It is not yet clear when “Switch To Android” will be available. It is possible that the program will be released together with Android12 in the next months.
Google follows ‘Move To iOS’
Apple released a similar app five years ago. Users can now transfer their apps and data from the Play Store to their iPhone using ” Move To iOS ” provided the relevant applications are also available in the Apple App Store. Google follows suit and wants to make such a tool available.
