Today we are going to talk about Snapdrop because it is a good ad-free AirDrop alternative for those who use Android devices. AirDrop file transfer system is one of the important things in the Apple ecosystem. It is very fast and convenient. On Android, we have alternatives such as Nearby Share (not yet functional on all Android devices), but there is still no real alternative that works at the same level as AirDrop.
Luckily, there are more quality alternatives like Snapdrop. It is a free alternative to AirDrop, compatible with Windows and Mac, and this app allows us to send files from phone to phone, from phone to PC and from PC to phone in a very convenient way.
Snapdrop is a free AirDrop alternative for Android
To be able to use Snapdrop you need to download the application to your Android mobile phone and visit Snapdrop.net using your PC, either Windows or macOS. If you like this application and you are going to use it a lot, you can install it as a PWA. The service works great and if the devices are on the same Wi-Fi network, they will recognize each other.
The operation is very similar to AirDrop, so you just have to open the app, select the files you want to send and that’s it. The same procedure works in reverse: we can open Snapdrop on the PC, drag any file and it will be sent to our Android phone.
