Pushbullet’s Portal Transfers Large Files Between Devices Over Wi-Fi

Pushbullet is one of our favorite apps for bridging the gap between your devices . The company is now taking it a step further with a new app called Portal, which can transfer files directly between your devices over Wi-Fi.

Unlike a tool like Dropbox, Portal doesn’t need to upload files to a third-party server, so the transfer is quick and direct. While Pushbullet itself is technically capable of transferring small files, the company itself admits that it is not very reliable. Portal requires both sharing devices to be on the same Wi-Fi network, but the trade-off is that Pushbullet claims you can reliably send files larger than 1GB.
