  • Wireless: Bluetooth enables you to share files without cables, which we often forget to carry.
  • Availability: Bluetooth is available on almost every device. So you can share files with practically any device you want on the go!
  • Simple to use: You don’t need to be a geek to transfer exchange files via Bluetooth. Even an average user with basic smartphone knowledge can easily complete the process.


  • Speed: Speed is one of the issues that users might face while transferring files wirelessly via Bluetooth. Since Bluetooth uses very low power consumption, the transfer rate is slow here.
  • Range: Bluetooth offers a maximum range of 100m, which might be too low for some users.
  • Security: Bluetooth uses radio frequencies that often open gates for hackers to take out information. Hence, it’s usually recommended not to use Bluetooth in public places.
