How to use Snapdrop on Android and Windows

You can find the replacement will work the same way on PC and Android. You can also send files between two Windows machines just like AirDrop between two Macs.

When writing posts, you often need to send screenshots from your phone to your laptop to use them in your posts. It's great having Apple's AirDrop on Android phones to send photos quickly and easily.

Unfortunately, AirDrop only works on Apple's platform. It has never branched out and developed technology for other platforms like Windows and Android. However, you can find alternatives that will work the same way on PC and Android. You can also send files between two Windows machines just like AirDrop between two Macs.

Use Snapdrop instead of Airdrop

If you need to send files between your mobile device and PC, you can use Snapdrop. Snapdrop is a file sharing platform that has been around since 2015. It allows transferring files between any two devices, regardless of the operating system (including Apple products). All that is needed is that both devices are on the same network.

Snapdrops are great for most files, but large files may not work very well. You also need a good WiFi network to send data successfully.

Another good feature of Snapdrop is that it has nothing to install. You can add an icon to your phone's home screen and bookmark the web page on your PC for easy access to the platform.
