“SHAREit” is an application developed by SHAREit Technologies Co.Ltd which allows people to share files, videos, pictures, documents, audio files, and various other apps from one device to another at higher speeds and efficiency than Bluetooth or HFC.
Transferring Data through a reliable passageway at a faster rate is what any everyday user of modern technology likes and fortunately for them SHAREit does exactly that and more! It is available on Android, Windows, and iOS so it caters to a huge number of people and devices worldwide.
The SHAREit for PC application is a huge innovation in transferring data between different devices. It frees people from the headache of maintaining DVDs, CDs and USBs by doing exactly what DVDs, CDs, and USBs do but with more efficiency, more reliability and more convenience.
Moreover, it is free while the traditional ways of data transfer are bound to cost you money.
How does SHAREit work?
SHAREit for PC works as a peer-to-peer exchange. It uses the Wi-fi direct feature instead of Bluetooth or conventional internet connections which is also the reason why it works almost 500 times faster than Bluetooth.
The Wi-fi direct feature means that different devices can connect without the aid of a wireless access point. This means that users can transfer huge files with GigaBytes worth of data stored in them without using a typical data connection.
The phenomenon is easily understandable if you look at it the way your typical hotspot connection works. You connect a device with another device through Wi-fi without the aid of a wireless access point.
How to Download SHAREit for PC?
To download and install SHAREit you would have to follow three simple steps.
Firstly you will need to download the ‘.exe’ file for SHAREit. I would personally recommend that you do that by using the following link:
Click on ‘Download’ to download the file.
Once you have downloaded the file locate it and run it. The setup will ask you to agree with the terms of agreement like any other software and once you’ve agreed it will ask you the directory of where you want to install the application. Click ‘Next’ and install the application.
Click ‘Next’ and install the application. Once the installation is finished click ‘Finish’.
SHAREit is now downloaded and installed on your PC.
How to Use the New Version
If you want to send a file from your phone to your PC you would first have to open up the application on your PC and simultaneously open SHAREit on your mobile phone.
To send a file from your mobile phone to your PC tap on ‘Send’. From there you can select any photo, video, application or audio file that you want to send.
Once you’ve selected the files you want to send tap on ‘Send’ and wait. The app will find devices nearby but the default setting for SHAREit for windows 32 bit, 64 bit is to look for android devices only so you will have to select either the ‘Connect to iOS’ or the ‘Connect to Windows’ option depending on what operating system you are using on your PC.
Once the scan begins you will be able to see nearby available PCs from where you can connect to your PC.
When you click on the PC that is shown on the radar you will immediately see a pop-up window on your PC’s screen asking your permission to connect to your mobile phone.
When you click on accept the file will immediately start being transferred from your phone into your PC.
Similarly, you can send files from your PC to your mobile phone when both the devices are connected. You can also use the QR code scanner from your phone to connect to your PC if you so desire.
Is SHAREit Free?
The application itself is completely free for Android, Windows, and iOS and wherever it is released. Some people would even call it quite economical.
Data Transfer and storage becomes easier when you start using SHAREit. Imagine you run out of space on your mobile phone but the data is too valuable to delete.
What do you do? With SHAREit you can transfer that data to your PC or other mobile device. Without SHAREit this would require hardware like Data Cables and for further transferring probably even USBs, DVDs or CDs.
All this hardware will cost you money whereas SHAREit is a software that is completely free to download and use. So SHAREit is not only free but also very economical and convenient.
Is SHAREit Safe?
The application and the way it works and functions are completely safe. As I’ve mentioned before SHAREit does nothing more than establishing a peer-to-peer connection.
It cannot and does not cause any harm to your mobile phone or PC. But the safety is as good as the files that you share. If the file that you are sending to your phone from your PC is corrupted or has a virus or a malware then surely that would take a toll on your mobile phone.
So the app itself is nothing to be scared of. It’s the files that you transfer that need to be monitored and checked for malware.
Why is SHAREit Transfer Speed Slow Sometimes
The SHAREit transfer speeds are generally very high but sometimes users also tend to face very low transfer speeds. There are a couple of reasons why this could happen.
Distance between the paired devices makes a huge impact on the file transfer rates. More distance means weaker signals and weaker signals ultimately mean slow data transfer rates.
Running too many background apps while file transfer might also slow down the transfer speeds.
Multiple apps running simultaneously greatly affect the ram of the device and slow down the processing speed while also ultimately slows down data transfer rates.
Too many Wi-fi signals in the background might also slow down the transfer rate. High amounts of background Wi-fi signals cause hindrance with the data transfer and slows down the speed.
To conclude I would like to say that in this modern-day world with ever-progressing technology it is essential for people to keep up with the newly established trends.
SHAREit for Windows XP/7/8/10 provides a comprehensive way for users to share their data at faster rates and reliable efficiency. It is something everyone should have and know how to use.
The bar that SHAREit has set in the market will inspire new creations and ideas and ultimately will help humanity thrive.
