Using PushBullet to Swap Files in a Few Clicks

If you want to transfer files from your PC to an Android device, the most popular method involves using AirDroid for Android.

However, there a new feature provided on the free app Pushbullet for iOS and Android that is worthy of attention as well.

All it takes is a just a couple of clicks which makes it ridiculously easy as the connection between both devices remain.

But why pick Pushbullet over Airdroid if you are already using the latter?

This is for the simple reason that Pushbullet pushes all notifications on your phone to desktop and this could include incoming calls, email notifications, texts and alerts from your news apps.

Now, in order to use Pushbullet, you need to download the app from Google Play while running the desktop app too. All you have to do is sign-in on both devices and you can begin swapping files too.

So, let’s say you want to move a music file from a particular folder. First, you open File Explorer and move to the folder. Next, right-click the file and move the mouse pointer over Pushbullet in the context menu.

If your mouse pointer stays over the selection, you’ll find that another menu opens up with a list of devices. Pick the one you wish to transfer the file to by clicking on the selection.

Soon, you will get a desktop notification saying that your song is being uploaded. And you’re done!
