#6 – Bluetooth File Sharing
Bluetooth is one of the traditional wireless file sharing methods for mobile devices. For BOOX, it can share files within Windows and Android systems. It has a relatively low transfer speed, but it will come in handy if you just need to share files with a small size.
#7 – Nearby Share
Nearby Share is a built-in feature of the Android system that allows data to be transferred via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. As a result, it can achieve an optimized speed to transfer large files between BOOX devices, or between your BOOX device and other Android smartphone / tablet. You can access this function by enabling its shortcut tile in the Control Center.
#8 – Third-Party File Transfer or Cloud Storage Apps
Actually, this means limitless possibilities for file transfer. Thanks to the open Android system, the built-in Google Play Store is offered to download and install any third-party apps that make your file transfer process extra efficient, or facilitate syncing to your favorite cloud services. Among the most popular service providers are Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and Dropbox.
#9 – USB File Transfer
When all your networks go down, you have to depend on the analog method to transfer files via the USB cable. Besides, most USB-C ports of the BOOX devices support OTG, so you can plug in your USB drive or memory card reader to sideload your files.
The built-in BooxDrop App is the most versatile tool as you can transfer files with almost any other device within the same network. When you need to transfer files between BOOX devices, Bluetooth and Nearby Share would be a better choice. If you are an experienced user, it is encouraged to optimize your workflow by setting up and syncing to your preferred cloud storage.
