Remember the days of Bluetooth when it used to take five minutes to send a small audio file, and after receiving it, we used to hope that the received file is not corrupted in any way? Well, those days are gone now. 7downloads is here to help you get the fastest file sharing app in the world.
SHAREit is a data transfer tool that allows users to send and receive data using Wi-Fi Direct technology. SHAREit was developed by Lenovo for Android phones, and then it was also released for other platforms like iOS and Windows. The thing that makes SHAREit stand out from other applications in the same genre is its ability to send and receive data between different operating systems quickly and easily. SHAREit claims to have over 600 million users from 200 countries.
Now about the technical data; SHAREit can transmit data at the speed of 20 Mbit/s or 2 MB/s that too without using any type of cables or your data pack. It uses TCP or Transmission Control Protocol to transfer your data. In simple terms, it means that the data to be sent is first broken down into small pieces called ‘packets.’ These data packets are then transmitted to the receiver, and when all of these packets have been successfully received, the receiving device combines them to make the original file once again.

Step 3: Then on the phone that is going to be receiving the data press the receive button. SHAREit will ask for some permissions to switch on the hotspot or Wi-Fi. Accept them, and you will be ready to receive.
Step 4: Then in the sender phone, wait for the receiving phone to appear and then select it. The data transfer will now start.

The transfer will now start, and you can share files between the computer and the phone without having to connect it again and again.
