11 applications to share files between Android phones, iOS or with the PC

26 mayo, 2021

We store a huge amount of applications, photos, videos and files of all kinds. It is also true that we have more and more devices at our fingertips. And of course, despite the fact that many of these files are in the cloud, sometimes we simply want to exchange them from one place to another or share them with the mobile of the person close to us.

Here we leave you a compilation of the best apps to share files in multiple people, between the mobile and the computer or between the devices you want. They work very well, some are simpler, others more complete but with all of them you can send what you need quickly. The best connection is via WiFi, but there are options such as data, Bluetooth or WiFi Direct that will also help us.

All of them are free and available to download on Google Play, although it is true that some have more advanced paid versions or subscriptions to unleash their full potential. We think it is not necessary as there are many free alternatives. Here they are.

Our first recommendation is the latest Google app. In addition to allowing us to save space, it is also a file manager that will allow us through bluetooth share our images with close people. Without a doubt a pleasant surprise that also has a beautiful story behind it.

Telegram

Send

Telegram is one of the most complete messaging applications and also one of the most effective for sending uncompressed images or files of any format. WhatsApp also allows you to send files, but the effectiveness of Telegram and its ‘Saved Messages’ is hard to match. Personally, it is the one I use the most to transfer files from one mobile to another or from Android to the computer.
