What is SHAREit for PC?
I know most of you have already used or still using SHAREit on your Android or iOS devices. But the term SHAREit for PC might should unfamiliar to many of you. Yes, there is a version of SHAREit available for PC!
Basically, this does the same work as its Android or iOS version brothers do. SHAREit for PC allows you to transfer files between PC to any SHAREit runnable devices. It demolished the limitation of the SHAREit that was once only able to share files between two phones. However, with the PC version of SHAREit, it is now possible to share any size file with your PC and phone without looking for a connecting cable or wait for the internet.
How does SHAREit work?
You probably think SHAREit works in a complex way, but it is not true. Rather it works straightforwardly. However, SHAREit is unique because it uses Wi-Fi and the Hotspot of devices for sharing files unlike some other file-sharing applications that use Bluetooth, HFC, or internet connections for the purpose.
All the versions SHAREit applications are work in pretty much the same way. The receiver devices first create a host server inside the app and then the sender device first searches via Wi-Fi and connect with the server making pair and work as a temporary bridge for the files. This method is known as Wi-Fi direct technology. The files now can be shared between these two paired devices.
Since SHAREit uses both Wi-Fi to share files and sharing speed is a lot faster than Bluetooth or HFC method. Moreover, it is a much secure and reliable file-sharing process. It is also simpler to connect. You can connect a device with the PC by only allowing it to make the connection. On top of that, the QR code makes SHAREit even more simple and hassle-free for paring.
