So, what is Wifi Direct?
It’s simply that you use Wifi to make a connection directly between two devices, making the transfer speed MUCH faster than bluetooth or such.
So, how do you do it?
simple as this: install SuperBeam on both phones you want to use, I’ve used a One M8 and Nexus 7 2013. since I know that both got the wifi direct framework.
Find what you want to share (since that is how it works) and share it to SuperBeam, and on the SuperBeam share page you either tap devices together with NFC (method I used) or scan the code. That’s pretty much it, I got speeds of around 41Mbit/s from Nexus 7 2013 to One M8.
You can share from the app itself as well, just open it and select “Files and folders” under Send. You need SuperBeam Pro if you want to send entire folders (with folder structure intact). With SuperBeam Pro you can send to/from computer as well.
My M8 complained about “unstable connection” when using wifi direct, since there’s no Internet connection (and shouldn’t be). But, that you just ignore.
And, make sure that you connect back the wifi connection if you send from a Nexus 7 since it disables the wifi connection.
