We may usually use bluetooth or NFC for sending small files like pictures, sounds and other stuff.  But what if we wanted to send or receive a large file or a large set of pictures?  We can try sending that through Bluetooth but it will take so long and becomes boring, that’s why there is a great alternative way for sending or receiving large files on your Android device.
