AirDroid is a hyper-connected solution letting users connect to other devices at different locations with an internet connection. It works on Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows-based devices and lets the users manage connected devices easily. On AirDroid, you need first to establish a connection between the controller and the controlled device.
This can be an Android mobile being controlled from another mobile or PC and vice versa. It works the same way as you would connect two devices wirelessly. Just that, in this case, there is no cable, and the connection is established wirelessly over the internet.
For the AirDroid Personal solution to work, you need to install the solution on the relevant devices. Once installed, connect the controlled and controller devices with each other. You also need to install the desktop client on Mac or PC or access the android via AirDroid web from the web browser.
If you don’t want to install the client on your system, AirDroid also has a web version that works without downloading the solutions on any of the devices.
Coming to the main topic of our discussion, that is, how to transfer files with AirDroid. This solution is built to improve the way two devices connect and interact with each other. From giving access control to letting share and send files, AirDroid has it all. Let’s see how you can transfer files from the desktop client and mobile device on AirDroid. This tutorial will also help you know how to use AirDroid on iPhone or Android.
In our first scenario, we will discuss the steps to transfer files from an iPhone to a desktop (Windows-based).
*Take note that both the devices that you want to connect must be using the same WiFi network.
With this process, the files will be shared to the connected device, in this case, the desktop.
You can also send files from the PC to your phone, be it iOS or Android-based. The key element here is that you must have the AirDroid client accessible on both devices.
With this process, you can easily transfer files between your PC or Mac and to an iPhone or Android device.
AirDroid has constantly been keeping an eye on the market trends and customer requirements. Due to this, they have been able to identify one important need, especially for Android users, which is an instant share option.
While the iOS users enjoy instant file sharing between two iOS devices with Airdrop, Android users don’t have this option. AirDroid has launched the Nearby Share features, which allows both iPhone and Android users to share files with other devices nearby.
The best part is that it works on both Android and iOS devices. So, you can share files from an Android phone to an iPhone with this feature easily and in an instant. Moreover, with the latest update to the application, this feature is accessible even without the internet.
To use this feature, download or update the application to the latest version and go to the Nearby function. Here, tap on Search, which will let you discover all the devices nearby on your phone. From here, tap on the device you want to establish a connection with and send files from the same.
Now you can also chat along with transferring files with AirDroid. This works in both ways, by establishing a connection via the internet by linking two devices or with the Nearby Share functionality.
Once the devices are connected, you will see an interface similar to Whatsapp’s screen. You will see the box for typing messages and a button to select the type of files you want to share.
The chat function allows the users to communicate from the same app and also manage other devices. So, with AirDroid, you can not only manage other devices but also communicate with the users on the other end.
With AirDroid, the number of ways you can manage a device are numerous. Plus, we have already talked about the instant share and communication feature. But that is not all. You can do much more from the same application.
Here are a few other functions worth mentioning;
