Connect with Droid Transfer via WiFi

- Upon launching, Droid Transfer will show a green patterned square. This is a QR code which you will scan with your Android device in a minute.

viewing on your Android device.
- Run Transfer Companion on your phone, and tap 'Scan Droid Transfer App QR Code'.
- Using the on-screen QR Code scanner, use your phone's camera to scan the QR Code that you saw earlier in Droid Transfer on your PC.

To keep your Android phone and your PC connected, please make sure that the Transfer Companion app is visible on your phone's screen while you're using Droid Transfer – don’t return to your home screen or switch to another app.
Troubleshooting Wi-Fi Connection
If you're struggling to connect your phone and your PC, as well as to make sure that a stable connection is maintained, please check our Wi-Fi Connection Troubleshooting guide.
If you have a large number of files, or a long message chain you wish to transfer between your Android phone and your PC, we recommend connecting via USB, as this is often more stable and faster than using a WiFi connection.
