Best File Transfer Apps for Android Marshmallow

Last updated on August 18, 2020 by

Android 6.0 Marshmallow has been released in October. This latest operating system for Android is used in Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player devices. One important new feature is that it contains a built-in file manager. It enables you to copy, delete, share and search files on a mobile with this system. To access it, you need to click “Settings” > “Storage” > “Explore”. However, it does not facilitate the data transfer between Android phone and computer. After comparing numerous applications available on the market, I would like to recommend you some best file transfer apps for Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Top Three: Portal

Pushbullet team brings us a brand new WiFi file transfer app – Portal. Although it can only achieve one-directional transfer, it’s still a nice tool for quick data transfer. After scanning the QR code on its website for connection, you just need to drag files into the browser to transfer them from computer to Android easily. Then, let’s check out how wonderful this tool is.
