Recently, I share an article about using Shareit for PC. In this article, we will check Xender APP for PC or How to use Xender in PC. Xender is a similar software or app exactly like Shareit. Functions of both the App are quite pretty much similar. Shareit has an Official version for Windows and Mac. But, Xender is not having a PC Version right now (Maybe in the near future). Xender is officially available for Android, iOS and Windows Smartphones. Xender uses Wifi as a medium to share or transfer any files. All modern laptops are having Wifi connectivity, But, when it comes to sharing files wirelessly over Wifi, it’s quite a big problem.
As always, Devices should be connected to the same Wifi Network. If you have Wifi on your Router, then Connect your Smartphone to it or create a Wifi Hotspot in your Windows PC. If your laptop or PC is not having the ability to create a Wifi hotspot and only has the ability to Connect to any Network, then don’t worry. Xender App in a smartphone can create temporary Hotspot connection, You can connect your PC/Laptop to the network created by Xender and then transfer files within it. It’s no way a tough task.

The official PC version of Xender was available for Windows on the Windows store. But, recently they removed their apps and services from Windows Apps Store. So, now onwards, we should stick to other older methods to get things done.
Xender For Windows vs Shareit For Windows
Xender and Shareit are the most popular File Sharing apps used by millions of people all around the globe. Xender is having more than 100,000,000+ install and Shareit is having 1,000,000,000+ installation in the Google Play Store alone. As you can see from the number, Shareit is having a huge user base. Now, here comes our question, should you use Xender or Shareit?
If you use your computer for huge data transfer then Shareit is having a dedicated Windows version of Shareit. A dedicated one like Shareit has a lot more added advantages than over the web services are given by Xender. The file transfer will be speedy and the reliability will be high for Shareit. I have used both the service extensively and I can tell that if you are looking for a reliable solution then Shareit will be a much better option than Xender. But if you use these apps to do file transfer occasionally then Xender is also quite good.
So, this is how we install Xender on our PC/Laptop/Mac and MacBook devices. Currently, Xender is not having a PC or Mac version. So, these are the only methods we can use right now. Maybe they will release a PC/Mac version soon like what Shareit did. So, things will get easier. Let me know in the comments section if you are waiting for the Xender for PC Edition.
