In this wireless and ultra mobile world, if you connect your Android Smartphone to your PC physically just for transferring data, it sounds quite ‘low-tech’. Today, in both businesses and homes, wireless networks are getting widespread with which multiple workstations can be connected to one another and to the web world. You can connect Android devices to Wi-Fi to access the web wirelessly but you cannot transfer files from them locally to another device on same network. Luckily, you can use several free and paid Android apps that can let you share your files to your PC by connecting to wireless network.
Applications to Connect Android Devices to PC Wirelessly
Wi-Fi File Transfer
With Wi-Fi File Transfer, you can connect your Android phone to the native file server on the nearest Wi-Fi network. Just enable this app and use a browser on your computer which is connected to same network and connect it to your mobile device. When it is connected, you can access the desired files on your mobile device and transfer files from your PC to the phone. You can also make this app password protected to avoid unauthorized access into your mobile device. You can get Wi-Fi File Transfer with upload limit of 4 MB to your device via wireless network or buy paid version worth $1.40 with unlimited support.
