Google Stealth Launches a “Switch to Android” App in the App Store

Google has quietly launched a new app designed to make it easier for users to switch to an Android device from their iPhone. The new app, called Switch to Android, is now available in the App Store but only for those who know the link. At the time of writing, it is not showing up in searches for unknown reasons.

Although the app store search isn’t good, clicking on our link should take you directly to the app’s app store entrance.

The app, which was first spotted by TechCrunch, helps people disable iMessage to prevent text loss while helping to move photos and videos from iCloud.

Also, the Google App Store description says no cables are required.

Google’s Switch to Android app helps you quickly and securely move your most important types of data (photos, videos, contacts, and calendar events) to a brand new Android device without messy cables.

Predictably, the app is already garnering fake reviews with one person simply asking “Why would anyone ever want to downgrade their phone?” Switching from Android to iPhone is something that seems much more likely to happen, right?

Apple already has an app that helps people take the other path – it has an app in the Google Play Store along with a support document outlining the steps required.
