At times, we feel the need to share files between our Computer and our Phone. Many times, I have transferred data wirelessly from my PC to my phone and vice versa using the Shareit app.
Now, you would probably be knowing that you need Shareit for PC. The shareit app for PC makes use of the QR Code technology to share files between two devices.
In this article, I am going to tell you about Shareit QR Code and how to use it to connect your Phone to your PC.
Let’s get started
If you have been using the shareit app for Android, you would have noticed the “Connect to PC” option on your app. If you click on that option, you get a “Scan to select” option too. Check the snaps below.
That is where the exact game of QR Code starts.
Let me explain.
Shareit QR Code is a special kind of a QR Code which can be generated only with Shareit v4.0 and above. If you have the shareit app with the specified version, then you will also be able to generate the QR Code.
Once the code is generated on the screen of your PC, you can scan it using your Phone’s camera. Once it is scanned, your phone and your pc will be connected.
Now let me tell you how this works. But before that, here is an important note
In order to connect your Phone and your PC, both the devices have to be connected with each other via some network.
Both the devices have to be connected via Wifi.
Each QR code which is displayed on your screen, contains some sort of information. When the code is scanned by your phone, that information is transferred to your Phone.
That information is nothing but just the instruction for the Shareit app on your Phone, you connect with the Shareit app on your Phone.
In other words, that instruction is the one that tells your Phone to connect to the PC when they both are on the same network.
That is pretty much it. The QR Code phenomenon is simple.
Sharing files using the Shareit QR Code is super easy. You just need to follow some two or three steps and it will be done.
For simplicity, below is a step by step tutorial.
- Open the Shareit app on your PC.
- Click on the Show QR Code option.
Now follow these steps on your phone.
- Open the app on your phone.
- Click on the three vertical dots.
- Then click on “Connect to PC” option
- Select the “Scan to select” option
- Now scan the QR Code on your PC screen with your Phone’s camera.
That’s it. If both the devices were connected on the same network, then they would have been connected by now.
