Are you an Android user who wants to share videos with your iPhone-toting friends? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to easily share videos from your Android device to an iPhone. So let’s get started!

Method 1: Using Messaging Apps

If you and your iPhone friend both have messaging apps installed on your devices, sharing videos can be a breeze. Here are the steps:

  • Step 1: Open the messaging app on your Android device.
  • Step 2: Start a new conversation with your iPhone friend or select an existing conversation.
  • Step 3: Tap on the attachment icon (usually a paperclip or a plus sign) to bring up the options to attach files.
  • Step 4: Select the video you want to share from your Android device’s gallery or file manager.
  • Step 5: Once selected, tap on the send button to send the video to your iPhone friend.

Note: Depending on the messaging app you’re using, these steps may vary slightly. However, most messaging apps follow a similar process for sharing media files.


  • – Compress the Video: If the video file size is too large, consider compressing it before sending. This can help reduce transfer time and prevent any issues with file size limitations imposed by certain messaging apps.
  • – Use Wi-Fi: Sharing large video files over mobile data can consume a significant amount of data. To avoid excessive data usage, connect to a Wi-Fi network before sharing videos.
  • – Trim the Video: If the video is too long and you only want to share a specific part, consider using a video editing app to trim the video before sending it.

Method 2: Using Cloud Storage Services

If you prefer not to use messaging apps or want to share videos with multiple iPhone users simultaneously, using cloud storage services can be an excellent option. Here’s how:

  • Step 1: Install a cloud storage app like Google Drive or Dropbox on your Android device.
  • Step 2: Sign in to your cloud storage account or create a new one if you don’t have an existing account.
  • Step 3: Upload the video file from your Android device to your cloud storage account.
  • Step 4: Share the video file by generating a shareable link or by inviting specific iPhone users via their email addresses.
  • Step 5: Your iPhone friends can then open the shared link or invitation email and download the video directly onto their devices.
  • – Set Permissions: When sharing videos through cloud storage services, make sure to set appropriate permissions on the shared files. You can choose whether recipients can view, edit, or download the shared videos.
  • – Check File Compatibility: Ensure that the video format you’re sharing is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. Commonly supported formats include MP4 and MOV.
  • – Consider Storage Space: If you have limited storage space on your cloud storage account, regularly delete old videos to free up space for new ones.

With these methods, sharing videos from Android to iPhone has never been easier. Whether you prefer using messaging apps or cloud storage services, you can now effortlessly share your favorite videos with your iPhone friends. Happy sharing!
