In its blog Google announced support for the Data Transfer Project launched in 2017 in conjunction with Microsoft, Twitter and Facebook. The project is aimed at developing tools that would allow to transfer data quickly and without loss directly from one service to another, bypassing the intermediate stages of their downloading to the device and re-downloading.

Project participants develop tools that can convert private APIs of any service into any standardized format. This will allow the transfer of data between any two providers, using existing tools and mechanisms.

At the moment, developers have created "adapters" for seven different services in five different data formats.

This is an open source project, any developer can contribute to cover more formats, services and hosting systems. Standardization of protocols and procedures allows different companies to develop the same technology in their own way.

Now it is pushed forward by the Gradle assembly automation system.
