The war between Android and Apple has always been there since the beginning of time. Both platforms have a huge user base and the problem is that it is sometimes very hard to unite the two types. We face many difficulties when we try to sync these devices and try to send something from one device to another. In this article, we discuss how to send video from iPhone to Android.
How to send video from iPhone to Android without losing quality – Using WhatsApp
If the video clip you are trying to send has a smaller file size, the best way to send it is to send it via WhatsApp. You also can use other IM services such as Messenger, Viber, or Imo, but the most efficient and fastest IM app is WhatsApp. The drawbacks of using WhatsApp are that you need to have an internet connection when you send videos via WhatsApp and you cannot send large files using WhatsApp.
