SHAREit’s primary feature is the peer to peer file transfer, allowing users to share pictures, music, and more, with other devices without using an active internet or Bluetooth connection. Being the first app channel partner of Google Play, it also ensures secure application transfers with Peer-to-Peer Offline App Sharing – letting users share apps via SHAREit, adding them to the user’s Play Library and managing app updates when the device comes back online.
SHAREit has also established itself as a one-stop content platform, providing users with a gaming, content discovery and consumption platform. SHAREit has a dedicated gaming center on the application, which offers HTML5 games, gaming videos and an option to download hot games. With games across all genres, it has one of the largest catalogues of mobile games from developers across the globe.
SHAREit’s remarkable growth has also emerged in the Philippines as the application has seen a significant 15% month on month increase in daily active users since the lockdown began in March 2020, having gained nearly 40 million monthly active users in the country. SHAREit was also recognized by AppAnnie’s The State of Mobile 2021 Report, ranking 6th in most used, and 8th in most downloaded applications in the Philippines, making it one of the most popular and fastest-growing apps in the country today.
With consistent advances in terms of content, SHAREit has successfully leveraged the popularity of local regional content to establish itself as the hub for short-format videos and has hence seen its user base spike worldwide with growing engagement levels.
