Transferring files from your smartphone/PC via WiFiSince file transfer has become very common among devices many have dedicated years to perfect it because files grow in size annually, some images are heavier than others depending on the quality of the camera we use, heavier files need to be transferred with greater speed without losing quality. Technology has helped to improve many methods of file transfer, If you remember, we once used to transfer files through infrared and the method involved us placing two phones side by side with their infrared screens facing each other, a method which looked kind of outdated but worked.

With the arrival of Bluetooth, file transfer between phones has become more advanced, it is no longer necessary to keep phones stuck to each other, we only need to have them within a certain range and the files will be transferred. This technology has also been implemented in other devices today, Wearables are the best example of how Bluetooth can be used to connect to a smartphone or other devices. Intelligent watches connect via Bluetooth to receive notifications and display them on their screens, Bluetooth enabled headsets are connected to smartphones to receive music that is being played and they can also be used to connect to video game consoles to enable players to communicate with each other.
