How to Send Videos From iPhone to Android

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of sending videos from an iPhone to an Android device. Whether you want to share a funny video with a friend or transfer important footage for work, we’ve got you covered.

Follow the steps below to get started.

Step 1: Connect Your iPhone and Android Device

To begin, make sure both your iPhone and Android device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This will allow them to communicate with each other seamlessly.

Step 2: Install Google Photos on Your iPhone

Head over to the App Store on your iPhone and search for “Google Photos.” Download and install the app on your device.

Once installed, open the app and sign in with your Google account details.

Step 3: Enable Backup and Sync

In the Google Photos app on your iPhone, tap on the menu icon in the top-left corner of the screen. From here, select “Settings” and then choose “Backup & Sync.”

Toggle the switch to enable backup and sync for photos and videos.

Step 4: Upload Videos to Google Photos

Now that backup and sync are enabled, all your videos from your iPhone’s camera roll will be automatically uploaded to Google Photos. To check if a video has been uploaded successfully, open Google Photos and navigate to the “Library” tab.

Here you’ll find all your uploaded videos organized by date.


If you have a slow internet connection or large videos that need uploading, it may take some time for all your videos to sync with Google Photos. Ensure you are connected to a stable and fast Wi-Fi network before proceeding.

Step 5: Access Google Photos on Your Android Device

On your Android device, open the Play Store and install the Google Photos app if you haven’t already. Once installed, sign in with the same Google account you used on your iPhone.

Step 6: Download Videos to Your Android Device

After signing in, navigate to the “Library” tab in the Google Photos app on your Android device. Here, you will find all the videos that were uploaded from your iPhone.

Tap on the video you wish to download, then tap on the share icon (usually represented by three dots) and select “Save video.” The video will be saved directly to your Android device’s gallery.

Downloading videos from Google Photos requires an active internet connection. Ensure you are connected to Wi-Fi or have a sufficient cellular data plan.

Step 7: Enjoy Your Videos!

Congratulations! You have successfully sent videos from your iPhone to your Android device.

You can now enjoy watching them anytime, anywhere directly from your Android device’s gallery.

  • Tips:
  • Make sure both devices have enough storage space before transferring videos.
  • You can organize videos into albums within Google Photos for easy access.
  • If you want to share videos with others, use the share option within Google Photos for quick and convenient sharing.

With these simple steps, you can easily transfer videos from an iPhone to an Android device using Google Photos. Enjoy seamless sharing and access to all your favorite memories across different platforms!
