Bluetooth technology enable users to transfer files between and among devices, even large ones, without cable wires or internet connection, provided that said devices are within a maximum distance of 100 meters. Sounds easy and hassle-free, plus you can save on data usage. Indeed it is. Imagine being able to transfer files, without wi-fi or cable attached to another device. Almost all gadgets, from mobiles phones, laptops, netbooks, printers, smartphones, tablets, even DVD players and many others are installed with Bluetooth connection.
For years, this wireless technology has been proven to be efficient, safe and secure. It does involve any risk in the transfer of file and no reports so far in terms of incompatibility issues between devices in their attempts to pair with other devices and transmit data. And this is not gadget specific or transfers are feasible between similar devices only. It can be between a mobile phone and a laptop, etc.
Use Bluetooth technology not just to save on data usage for file transfer but also because it is handy. It is almost everywhere and in every device invented so far. Besides it is low power and using it will not drain your batteries fast, as compared to other modes of file transfer.
Easy to use, no complicated instructions nor lots of buttons to click. Just simply go to your settings, activate it, tap the pairing icon and wait for it to send signals to other devices.
Some remarkable features of Bluetooth technology:
a. Bluetooth allows file transfer even if devices are not directly placed together or separated by walls or any structure. As long as both devices are within the maximum distance of 100 meters. Of course, the speed of transfer and the capacity to hold and receive files depend on the version or nature of the device.
b. Connectivity usually requires cable or an internet connection. That is where the unique feature of Bluetooth lies. It uses radio waves to connect devices. Gadgets are installed with a Bluetooth software contained in a tiny computer chip.
c. Cost-efficient. Bluetooth technology does not require a monthly subscription fee, nor there is a need to pay for every usage or for the quantity of files transferred. Once installed and the device has activated it, you can now connect with other available gadgets in the vicinity.
d. Low possibility of interference from wireless networks. Bluetooth functions as it is designed to be, and is in no way affected by other types of networks available.
e. Transfer speed is fast normally. However, in this aspect, other technologies are really superior like Wi-Fi or connected by cable. There are some disadvantages of using Bluetooth technology, or other types could serve us better, but as we can observed in anything that concerns technology, the positive aspect always outweighs the negative, since this was created purposely to make life easier. Errors are there, downsides could not be avoided. What is important, is for Bluetooth technology to provide a viable option to individuals and organizations particularly on file transfer services.
