How to transfer files between mobile phones and PC using SHAREit
Gone are the days of using cables to transfer files across platforms – from PC to smartphone and vice versa. Today, with a Wi-Fi/Hotspot-enabled smartphone, you can easily go wireless and transfer your files with convenience.
One of the numerous apps leveraging on the Wi-Fi/Hotspot technology, to transfer files across platforms, is SHAREit. And we have outlined the necessary guidelines below:
- Install SHAREit on your PC and mobile phone
After installation, launch the app on both platforms, and proceed with the next step.
- Establish connection
There are several ways to go about this, and the most popular method has been described below;
- connect your PC and mobile phone on the same wireless network;
- open SHAREit on your PC;
- click on Show QR code;
- open the app on your phone;
- select Connect to PC;
- tap on the Scan to connect icon; and
- scan the QR code on your phone to establish connection.
Alternatively, you can easily connect both platforms over Wi-Fi Hotspot.
- Start sending your files
After connection has been established, you’re through with the difficult part. You can now proceed to send files from your phone (to your PC). To do this, simply browse through your phone and select the file(s) to transfer. File(s) in transit could be a photo, music, document or video file.
Similarly, to transfer files from your PC to your phone; browse through your local storage, select the file transfer and follow the command prompts to finish up. Once you’re done, close the app on both platforms and disconnect/disable your Wi-Fi/Hotspot.
