2 Ways to Transfer Large Files from Windows PC to Android Over Wi-Fi

In general, there are two ways to transfer files from PC to an Android device wirelessly or vice versa: using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi is the best option if you want to transfer large files since it has way faster transfer rate than Bluetooth.

Some Android smartphone brands might offer a built-in tool to allow you to transfer files from PC to your Android device via Wi-Fi. If you use a smartphone model that has no such tool, there are some tools you can use out there. Two tools we can recommend are AnyTrans and DroidTransfer. These tools are paid tools so they might are more suited if you regularly transfer files from PC to Android device.

How to transfer large files from PC to Android with AnyTrans

Before getting started, you definitely need to install AnyTrans on your PC first. You can download the binary file (the EXE file) of AnyTrans on its official site. You will also need to install the AnyTrans app on your Android device, which you can get on Googe Play.

Once installed, launch AnyTrans on both your PC and Android device and also make sure that your PC and your Android device are connected to the same Wi-Fi. Tap the Connect to Computer button on AnyTrans on Android.

Scan the QR code on the AnyTrans app on your PC.

AnyTrans will ask for permission to access your data. Simply click the Allow button to continue. Once connected, you will see the following interface. Click the Add Content tab to start transferring files from your PC to your Android device.

Select the files you want to transfer and click the Next button.

Wait until AnyTrans is done transferring your files. Once the transfer is done, you can find your files on your Android gallery according to the file type. For instance, if the files you transferred are videos, you can find them on the Movies folder on your Android gallery.

How to transfer large files from PC to Android with DroidTransfer

The way DroidTransfer works is roughly the same as AnyTrans. You also need to install the app of DroidTransfer on both your PC and your Android device (the Android app of DroidTransfer named Transfer Companion). DroidTransfer also provides a QR code to allow you to instantly connect your PC and Android device.

You can download the binary file of DroidTransfer on its official site. While for Android, you can get it on Google Play.

Once installed, launch the app of DroidTransfer on both your PC and Transfer Companion on your Android device (make sure that your PC and your Android device are connected to the same Wi-Fi). On the Transfer Companion app on your Android device, tap the Scan DroidTransfer QR Code button to scan the QR code on the DroidTransfer app on your desktop.

If you experience a problem during connecting, change the IP address beneath the QR code. Make sure that the IP address is the same as the IP address of your PC. You can type ipconfig on the Command Prompt to figure out the IP address of your PC. You can find the IP address in the following section.

Once you have successfully connected your PC and Android device, click the Files tab on the left panel and select a folder where you want your files to be transferred to. Click the Add File button on the toolbar to add the files.

Wait until DroidTranser is done transferring your files. Once done, you can also find your files on your Android gallery.
