Huawei Share 2.0 is out and here we have a detailed tutorial on how to setup Huawei Share to quickly transfer files between your Huawei / Honor device and PC.
Huawei Share is an official in-built feature of Huawei’s EMUI ROM which helps to transfer files between two Huawei phones or a Huawei phone and Windows/MacOS PC. As the file transfer takes place through a Wi-Fi, both the sender and receiver should be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. That’s the reason the smartphone turns into a file server as long as it is on the same computer LAN or other mobile phones can access the files on the phone, whether Windows, MAC or Android, as long as they can support the SMB protocol.
Huawei Share 2.0 is a new feature introduced by Huawei in its EMUI 8.1 OS. As Huawei P20 and P20 Pro where the company’s first devices to run on EMUI 8.1 out-of-the-box, these were first to grab this feature. However, the feature was rolled out widely to a number of Huawei and Honor smartphones.
