SHAREit is one of the best sharing apps that allows users to transfer files from one device to another. With subsequent app updates and Google hardening the security levels for every new Android variant, the SHAREit experience isn’t as perfect as it used to be.
Luckily, there are some SHAREit alternatives worth trying. Here is what you should know.
Mi Drop is developed by Xiaomi and is an excellent alternative to SHAREit. The app has a friendly user interface, and there are only two options for sending and receiving files. You can also utilize the app to directly access the various apps on your PC with an FTP server link.
Developed by Google, Files Go is a fantastic file manager that has been designed to eliminate all the clutter on your Android device. The app automatically selects the hidden and discarded waste, such as duplicate files, APK files, and more, allowing you to delete all of them.
Files GO also has an Airdrop like File Transfer feature. Both devices must have the app installed to send or receive any files.
Send Anywhere allows you to send any files anywhere. All you need is a one-time 6-digit key for a successful file transfer (no need for an Internet connection or Wi-Fi). You can also share files with many people at once via a link.
ES File Explorer
ES File Explorer is another great alternative to SHAREit. The app allows you to browse the files you want to transfer and share them quickly. The app utilizes Wi-Fi Direct, and both the sender and receiver must be on the same Wi-Fi network.
Zapya has a clean user interface and features a universal search bar that can sweep all types of files such as audio, apps, videos, and more. The app also has a QR code sharing option.
