As WhatsApp is to instant messaging, SHAREit used to be to file transfer. One could transfer any amount of data without the use of the Internet.
While people used to wait hours and hours to get a file of 5GB uploaded to google drive and then send links, shareIt would do the same job in less than 5 minutes!
But, not to worry, I came across the list of apps to replace ShareIt.
This list contains apps that can rival even apple’s airdrop feature. All thanks to their connection protocol which boosts their transfer speeds. Some of these offer a seamless and unified experience, while others will just make bulky file transferring painless for you.
Here is the List of Top Alternative Apps like SHAREit that you can use after ban in India:
Google’s Files Go is a wonderful file manager that has been designed to remove clutter on your Android Phone. The app can automatically pick up hidden and discarded waste like unused APK files, duplicate files, Good morning messages, etc. and then allows you to delete all of them at once.
Files Go also has an Airdrop like File Transfer tool too. It’s the same drill. Both devices should have Files go installed. One acts as the sender and other the receiver. After getting an approved connection from both devices, you can send/share apps, images, videos, and documents. The app is simple, secure, and clutter-free.
You can access the history of files received and sent and can tap and install APK files directly from the app.
Besides all ShareIt like facilities, files can also declutter your phone. It was initially designed as a cleaning app. Once installed, it would go thoroughly through your phone to check for extra items capturing your phone’s storage space.
Another surprising feature is that it can double up as your file manager. You can search for files, sort through them.
