Do you have a long video on your iPhone that you want to share with your friends who use Android? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of sending long videos from iPhone to Android. So, let’s get started!

Using Cloud Storage Services

If your video is too large to send via traditional methods like email or messaging apps, using cloud storage services is a great solution. Here’s how:

Step 1: Upload the Video to a Cloud Storage Service

First, you need to upload the video from your iPhone to a cloud storage service. There are many options available such as Google Drive, Dropbox, or OneDrive. Follow these steps:

  • Open the Cloud Storage App: Install and open the app of your chosen cloud storage service on your iPhone.
  • Create an Account (if necessary): If you don’t have an account, sign up and create one.
  • Upload the Video: Tap on the “Upload” or “+” button and select the video from your camera roll. Wait for the video to finish uploading.

Step 2: Share the Video Link

After uploading the video to a cloud storage service, you can easily share it with your Android-using friends by sending them the link. Here’s how:

  • Select the Video: Open the cloud storage app and locate the uploaded video.
  • Generate Sharing Link: Tap on the “Share” or “More Options” button and choose “Generate Link” or similar option.
  • Copy the Link: Once the link is generated, copy it to your clipboard.
  • Share the Link: Open your preferred messaging app and send the link to your friends. They can simply click on the link to access and download the video.

Using Third-Party File Transfer Apps

If you prefer a direct transfer between iPhone and Android without relying on cloud storage, you can use third-party file transfer apps like SHAREit or Xender. Here’s how:

Step 1: Install a File Transfer App

To start, both you and your friends need to install the same file transfer app on your respective devices. Let’s take SHAREit as an example:

  • Download SHAREit: Go to the App Store and install SHAREit on your iPhone.
  • Install on Android: Your Android-using friends should also install SHAREit from the Google Play Store.

Step 2: Connect and Transfer

Once both devices have the file transfer app installed, follow these steps:

  • Create a Hotspot (iPhone): Open SHAREit on your iPhone and tap “Send.” Then, tap “Connect to iOS/Android.”

    This will create a hotspot for connection.

  • Join Hotspot (Android): On your friend’s Android device, open SHAREit, tap “Receive,” and then join the created hotspot by selecting it from the available Wi-Fi networks.
  • Select and Send Video: Now, go back to SHAREit on your iPhone, select the video you want to send, and tap “Send.” Choose your friend’s device from the list of available receivers.
  • Accept and Download: On the Android device, your friend will receive a notification to accept the file transfer. Once accepted, the video will be downloaded on their device.

There you have it! You’ve successfully learned two different methods to send long videos from iPhone to Android.

Whether you prefer using cloud storage services or third-party file transfer apps, these methods will ensure that your videos reach their destination without any hassle. Enjoy sharing your memorable moments with your friends!
