LocalSend in XeroLinux: Airdrop Alternative for Android and Ios
[Image: 2.png]

LocalSend is a AirDrop alternative designed specifically for Linux systems.

Quote:AirDrop is a feature in iOS and macOS that lets physically close Mac and iOS devices share files wirelessly with one another with a minimum of fuss. The name basically means to send or 'drop' files over the air from one device to another.

It uses Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to transmit the files via a proprietary, close-range wireless communication process. Those can be text, image, or other types of files, such as playlists and locations. There are no size limits on the file.

You can share between different operating systems (iOS to macOS, for example) or between devices using the same operating system (iOS to iOS, for instance).

-LocalSend supports file and message sharing between various combinations of devices, such as Android-to-Android, Android to Linux desktop, Linux desktop to Linux desktop, Iphone to Linux and Linux to Iphone.

-LocalSend does not impose specific file size limitations. However, the transfer speed may vary based on factors such as the network environment and device capabilities.

1. Install LocalSend from Flathub

$ flatpak install flathub org.localsend.localsend_app

2. Install LocalSend on Android or iPhone with Playstore or Applestore

Please note. The program must be installed on all systems where you want to share files

3. Open Localsend on XeroLinux(you can find it in the menu, in accessories)

This is the interface:

As you can see, LocalSend interface is very simple and easy to understand. It has only three buttons namely Receive, Send and Settings.

LocalSend assigns unique nicknames to each device, ensuring individual identification across devices in the network.
