I keep my memorable photos, melodious music or important files on the computer. While working out on the PC, I love to listen to music or view some of the unforgettable pics to recall memories. There are certain times when I need to access these files on my Android device to share them with friends. Is there any way I can remotely access files on my phone from PC?
Of course, there is! You can easily access files stored on your PC using your Android smartphone. “SHAREit” app has been primed to let you do so effortlessly. You can get it free from the Google Play Store.
You need to install this app both on your smartphone and computer in order to transfer files back and forth. Hence, download and install it on your PC from the SHAREit website. Make sure you have Wi-Fi connection as it doesn’t work with data.
