Transfer Files from PC to Android-Wireless file transfer

There are many questions I have come across asking about how to transfer files over WiFi. In the section above, I discussed several methods but they do not work as the WiFi method together with your browser. You are also able to transfer from multiple devices. Below are some features you will enjoy while you are using WiFi transfer.

  1. Upload or download multiple files at once as a zipped folder.
  2. Upload entire folder structures, Note that this is only possible with Google Chrome.
  3. Delete, rename, copy, zip, or unzip files before or after transferring them
  4. You may also add password authentication to all your files and transfer activities.
  5. Shortcuts to photo, video, and music directories on both devices, that is your computer and Android phone.
  6. You may also run the transfer as a background service, this allows you to carry on other tasks while the transfer proceeds.
  7. You may as well view all your photos directly in your web browser, it depends on what you want, anyway.
  8. You can autostart the transfer processes whenever you are connected to a home network.
  9. Access to external SD cards and USB storage devices.
  10. Supports hotspot mode for any device connected with a larger number of connection limits.

Wireless Files Transfer vs USB File Transfer

With matters concerning the transfer of files from one device to another, we go deeper before choosing a specific device to use for such activities because they are sometimes important packets of data and information we are either passing over or receiving.

We consider several factors. Depending on the speed of the medium, we may choose one means over the other. Wireless connections or transfer means are faster than USB transfer. So with a given speed, we preferably choose Wireless unless otherwise.

Another aspect may be the bits of data that can be transferred per second over a given medium. Wireless connections provide a larger bit carriage as compared to wired connections such as USB file transfer.

The other thing we may consider then is the size of the file to be transferred. If the size is too big, or small, we may choose the medium to use according to what our target file is.

How can we forget the number of devices we may wish to share with? Sometimes we want to share a single file over four devices yet USB will support only a single pair of connected devices. With such situations, you may have no choice but to adapt the wireless file transfer method.

Note that, USB is fast in terms of connection. It’s a matter of plug and play while wireless will take you several minutes to set up a wireless connection, then another time while connecting. With faster services, you may use USB transfer means. It will work for you as expected. So choosing a method shall depend on what you want, we prefer different methods given diverse conditions.
