Technologically speaking, the all-new SHAREit app is one of the most advanced in the commercial space today. There are many forums on the Internet where people, users in most cases, have complained that they do not know the details behind the technology of the new app and wish to know more. Not knowing has also made them sceptical of the many virtues of the app and they do not use it as well. To them we say, read this page.
First of all, a brief background about the new app. SHAREit, at its minimum, is a handy alternative to many offline file-sharing apps and is also a rival of the proprietary technology of Bluetooth. It also lets you transfer data to other devices, mostly Android devices, for no charge at all, compared to data packets used for online transfers. Right now, it is available on the Google Play store and has a fantastic rating of about 4.5/5. Also, the app has a download of approximately 100 million times.
The secret behind the new SHAREit app is fairly simple and easy to comprehend. It uses the concept of the Wi-Fi Direct, which is a feature we find pre-installed in every almost all Android devices we currently find in the market. This is how the Wi-Fi Direct works: a host server is created first within the application. To this, the other devices can be added. The receiver/s then has only one thing to do: join the hosted server. The traditional job of SHAREit can be easily completed after this.
Remember that both the sender and receiver devices must always be connected to each other on the server in order for the transfer to succeed.
Naturally, many users had some questions regarding the tech behind the SHAREit app. No, it does not use either Bluetooth, or NFC, and does not use internet services. Note that tests by internet speed calculating applications including Ookla have shown that some files are being transferred, while some amount of internet usage is also shown. The money is not, however, deducted from your mobile data package; it is deducted from the server Wi-Fi data.
