When you open the app and go to Backup Settings, there are three options: Contacts, Calendar events, and Photos and videos and they do exactly what you imagine. In the first option, you save the contacts you have stored on your device or in iCloud, in the equivalent Google service; in the second option, events stored on the device or iCloud are copied and placed on Google Calendar; in the third option, your photos and videos will be copied to Google Photos.

When you log in with your Google account on Android, this content will be automatically synced to the new device.
