Best Android Apps to Transfer Files With Wi-Fi Direct

Sharing large files between Android devices without internet is tedious and time-consuming task. Bluetooth has long been used to transfer music, photos and other files between Android devices and PCs, transferring small files with Bluetooth doesn’t take much time but when files are as large as some gigabytes, It might take a few hours to transfer files with Bluetooth. Here, WiFi Direct comes into picture and allow transfer speed of 2-3 Mbps. WiFi Direct is rarely used for sharing files since most of the apps need coding to handle the file transfer operation. But there are a couple of apps that take advantage of WiFi Direct to transfer large files through WiFi in just minutes.
