Learn how to Share/ Transfer Files between PC and Android/iPhone/iPad using Wi-Fi. Here I have shared step by step process how you can transfer/share files between any PC and Android Device (without using cable).
Let’s Assume you own a PC (any Windows/Mac Computer) and an Android Smartphone. You must be familiar with this situation where you need to transfer a file from your PC to your Android smartphone.
Maybe because of the reason that computers have a larger hard disk you store all the movies that you download from the web on your computer, and now you want to watch a movie on your smartphone. What will you do now? You will connect your Android smartphone to your PC using a USB and just copy or move the film on your smartphone.
This is how you typically share/transfer files – right? But what if you lost your USB cable. The number of wires you have the messier the whole thing becomes. Anyhow, I hope you get me.
My point here is managing many cables can be tricky, and it saves time if you avoid using cable and use wi-fi to transfer files between two devices. At the first try, you may find the following steps annoying (I don’t think you will, but suppose). But believe me after trying a few times you will get used to these steps and won’t use cables anymore for transferring or sharing files between PC/Mac and Android Smartphone.
How to Share Files Between PC/Mac and Android Device using Wi-Fi
For doing this, you just need two things – Wi-Fi and Xender App. I think you have Wi-Fi but even if you don’t have a Wi-Fi you can use the Mobile Hotspot (WiFi) of your Smartphone. Before you start following the step by step process, please make sure you have Xender files sharing app installed on your Android Device(Smartphone/Tablet). You can download Xender for Android from Below.
After downloading Xender install this on your Android device and start following the 3 step guide below.
- Connect your Smartphone and PC to the Same Wi-Fi network.
