Transfer files between Android and PC using SHAREit WebShare

Normally you need to have SHAREit free file transfer app installed on both devices in order to share files and documents between them. Occasionally you only have a few files, such as your photos, videos, to send to your family, friends or coworkers. And they don’t want them to download and install SHAREit for it. Is it possible? SHAREit introduced a new feature called WebShare or SHAREit for web which doesn’t require both devices to have SHAREit and it works with Wi-Fi connection.

With SHAREit WebShare, you can send files from one device to other devices, a PC, Mac or another mobile phone, with SHAREit installed on one of them only. On the other phone or computer without SHAREit, access the SHAREit WebShare address,, using a web browser. SHAREit WebShare will generate a QR code.
