New Google Drive Shortcut Helps in Migration from iOS to Android

Google Drive has just received a new shortcut to assist users switching from iOS to Android, making it easy to transfer contacts, calendars, photos and videos across the two platforms.

Gdrive backup

For users who don’t already use GCal for their schedule or Google Photos to store their images, the Drive shortcut saves the hassle of manually transferring your data, by simply starting the new backup process within the settings page.

According to Engadget:

The whole thing could take few a hours, and you’ll have to keep Drive active and on screen the whole time. Google advises you to plug your phone in and connect to WiFi. Now, you might not ever put this to use if you got a Pixel and the Quick Switch Adapter that comes with it, but it sure sounds useful for other Android devices. Just don’t forget to switch off iMessage before you leave.
