What is Wi-Fi Direct and how do you use it?

Wi-Fi Direct transfers data faster with lower latency

Wi-Fi Direct works much like a standard Wi-Fi connection except that instead of connecting to a router, it allows devices to connect directly to each other. This will enable you to connect without having to be within range of a Wi-Fi access point. In addition, this direct connection allows for a higher transfer rate and lower latency.

One of the ways this technology has been implemented on Android is the Nearby Sharing feature. Nearby sharing allows Android devices to send files to each other quickly and securely. This is more important than ever as file sizes grow with 4K and HDR technology, especially for videos.

When sharing on your Android phone, you can select the “Nearby Sharing” or “Nearby Sharing” option. Then, you can enable the feature that can be found by the phone that sends the file to the receiver. You can choose whether or not everyone sees you or only the people you want to allow. The devices will use Bluetooth to establish a Wi-Fi Direct connection to transfer the file. Some phones will display a Wi-Fi Direct icon.

You can also send gigabytes of data in just a minute or two. This means that you can share your memories with family or friends without losing any quality or waiting for the messaging service to process the video in lower quality. Perhaps the best part about this feature is that any modern Android phone can use it, including the best Android phones. You can even use it to share with Chromebooks.
