If you haven’t downloaded SHAREit on your computer yet, here are a few simple steps to help you get started:
Check the requirements first
Before you can download SHAREit on your computer, make sure that it has at least 512MB of RAM available, has 50MB of free space and has an Intel Pentium IV or higher processor.
Download the Windows installer
Log in to the official website of SHAREit, shareit.lenovo.com and click “Free Download” at the top of the page. Then, select the “Download for Windows” options to get the .exe file. After downloading, open the file and agree to the Lenovo Licensing Agreement. The app is now ready to install through the wizard. You just have to follow the steps until the installation is done and you’re ready to use SHAREit on your computer.
Now that you have SHAREit installed on your computer, here are some features that you need to know to make the most out of the app:
Share files across various platforms
SHAREit allows you to share or transfer files without the hassles of connecting to the internet, using cables or waiting hours for a file to be transferred. For instance, if you want to share files from your phone to your computer, you just need to pair the two using the QR code provided by SHAREit.
The app also makes it easier to share files across different operating systems. While it was very difficult to share files from Android to iPhone devices before, SHAREit allows you to make the process faster without paying for anything.
Use your phone as a remote control
The Play To option in SHAREit lets you turn your phone into a remote control for your computer, which is useful for PowerPoint presentations. You can also use this feature to easily play videos or music during parties without having to constantly go to your computer or laptop.
Take advantage of the remote view
Are you tired of constantly going to your computer to search for files or play presentations? You can take advantage of SHAREit’s remote view feature where you can easily find, display and share any document or program on your computer by using your phone.
With over 500 million downloads, there is no denying that SHAREit has become a powerful tool for many people these days. From making file sharing a lot more convenient to giving you more control of your devices, there really is a lot that the SHAREit app has to offer. And with Lenovo working on more improvements for the next update, we can only look forward to better things to come.
