SHAREit is a cross-platform file transfer app for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS devices that enables users to exchange files easily between these platforms. Thanks to its fast transfer rate and user-friendliness, SHAREit has quickly become the go-to solution for sharing large files without waiting for recipients to upload them online – you can even send large files without using up your data package! Download it free at its official website today.
To start the file transfer process, both devices that you wish to connect must both be on the same Wi-Fi network. SHAREit will scan for devices it can send or receive from, as shown below in its window, and once it detects one it will initiate its connection process.
Once selected, click the Next button and the app will display all the files or folders that have been selected as transfers along with their details including size and current location. If you wish to change their destination folder simply use the drop down menu and choose where they should go next.
Once the files have been transferred, they can be viewed on another device. To do this, hover your mouse over them and click on the three vertical dots that will appear in the top-right corner. This will open their contents and you can start downloading or playing them immediately.
Another great aspect of this app is that you can send any type of file, even those with long extensions like ZIP or MKV videos, directly to friends with just a few taps of your screen. Audio and video files also support this functionality seamlessly.
SHAREit is designed to be easy and resource-light, without any additional permissions or apps required for it to function. Available for Windows, Android and iOS smartphones as well as tablets for free from both App Store and Google Play – however the Android version might feature ads which might annoy some users.
PC and Mac versions of the app provide more streamlined experiences, with a window showing a QR code which another device can recognize. On Android and iOS platforms however, their user interfaces tend to be more cluttered due to extra content not necessary for transfer processes.
SHAREit requires only minimal system requirements to work, yet can run on more advanced computers as well. Furthermore, its data usage when transferring files over Wi-Fi is very minimal, helping keep internet usage costs under control while still quickly sending large files across.
