With Google's Switch to Android app, you can quickly and securely move your most important data—such as photos, videos, contacts, and calendar events—to a new Android device without wires.

The app also teaches you other important steps to set up your device, such as turning off iMessage so you can receive all SMS from your friends and family.

This is the description of the new google app. With her, we can transfer contacts, photos, videos and contacts from iOS to Android in a simple way.

The application is already available in the United States and in other markets such as Spain. However, there are many countries that still do not have the app in the App Store. But it is a matter of days before the global publication of this new app 'Switch to Android'
