Leaving Windows Phone for Android? The Samsung Smart Switch app now supports Windows 10 Mobile

Earlier today our Laurent Giret highlighted that even though 2016 has been a very bad year for Windows Phone, Microsoft hasn’t quite given up on the platform just yet.  Many Windows Phone users, however, have turned to other platforms to fulfill their mobile phone needs and our current poll results even show that 11.05% of our readers have left for Android.  So, if you’re planning to abandon the Windows phone platform, you might want to check out the Samsung Smart Switch app for Android, as it now supports Windows 10 Mobile (via Neowin.)

Using this app will make the switch over from Windows Phone to Android much easier, since it wirelessly transfers over your messages, contacts, calendar contracts, and DRM-free videos, photos, and music. In fact, the app goes as far to help you transfer over call logs, memos, alarms, Wi-Fi settings, and much more. The app was recently updated to support Android 7.0, so if you’re interested, please have a look at the official app description:

Smart Switch gives you the freedom to move your contacts, music, photos, calendar, text messages, device settings and more to your new Galaxy device. Plus, Smart Switch™ helps you find your favorite apps or suggest similar ones on Google Play.

While this app has long supported Windows Phone 8.1, it only picked up support for Windows 10 Mobile on December 27th. So, if you’ve finally given up on Windows Phone and switched to Android, and want to easily transfer over your phone’s content, you may find the link to the app below. Once you’ve checked it out, please do drop us a comment to let us know how the experience is going for you!
