Android Beam is a feature using which transfer of content is possible between NFC equipped Android devices by simply tapping on the devices. The individuals can transfer or share YouTube videos, Google Maps locations, sharing of images and videos and more. However, there is a downside to this available functionality. This uses Bluetooth and not the Wi-Fi Direct to transfer these files which consumes more time and is relatively slower. Hence, let’s check out a new functionality called SuperBeam which produces the necessary goods in the best available manner. The users can employ such an App and share any kind of files over Wi-Fi Direct via the NFC.
- At the beginning, you should download this particular SuperBeam application from here. This has to be downloaded on both the Android devices. These include the device that you want to share from and the other device that you want to share to. Superbeam provides a beneficial way to transfer files utilizing Wi-Fi direct even if the particularized handset lacks NFC.
- After the app is installed, you will need to select the file or files which you want to send using the preferred File manager. Next tap on the Share menu option and choose SuperBeam from the list.
- Afterwards, SuperBeam opens up and you can easily activate Wi-Fi Hotspot and display a certain QR code on your handset’s screen. Incase the device doesn’t feature NFC, then this particularized QR code using any Barcode scanner app to simply initiate the respective transfer.
- If there is NFC available on both the devices, then you can simply keep these both devices together and bump their back to eventually tap on the screen of the particularized transferor device. This action is only performed once you manage to hear Android Beam notification.
- Hereafter, a Wi-Fi Direct connection is established between the two devices, and this is responsible for beginning the file transfer.
- As the transfer takes place utilizing Wi-Fi Direct, thus ideally even large files can be easily transferred in mere seconds.
