Google and Apple have been battling it out with each other for quite a while.

In fact, it’s not that uncommon to see a single user owning devices with different, competing operating systems.
Devices with the same OS can easily share content like messages, contacts, and photos without hassle. But sharing files between Apple and Google products is a bit of a challenge.
