Huawei Share is an immediate file transfer tool between Huawei mobiles, using Bluetooth connection and WiFi Direct technology. We explain step by step how it works and how you can take advantage of it.


Huawei Share is a function included in mobile phones with Huawei's own operating system, EMUI: both Huawei terminals and those of its second brand, Honor.

The tool allows you to instantly transfer photos and other files from one phone to another, using WiFi Direct and Bluetooth. The process is simple and takes very few steps, making it the most interesting option to send anything from one Huawei mobile to another.

Another interesting advantage is that neither the images nor the files lose quality, something that happens for example if you send them by WhatsApp from one terminal to another.

Huawei Share's technology is based on the phone's Bluetooth and WiFi Direct connections: Bluetooth allows both mobiles to "meet" while WiFi Direct performs the transfer.

WiFi Direct is a fast file transfer protocol without cables and without the need for an Internet connection. We could understand it as an improved and more modern version of Bluetooth technology, in which a terminal works directly as an access point.


First of all, it is important that both phones have the Huawei Share switch on, which is available in the drop-down menu of the notification bar. When it is switched on, the mobile phone will also activate the Bluetooth connection.

Then select the files or photos you want to send on the source terminal, and click on the Share button. As always, a panel will open with numerous apps where you can perform the action (WhatsApp, your social networks, etc.).

At the top of this small panel will show the devices with Huawei Share that are in the range of the mobile range. Select here the mobile you want to send the files to.

In the destination mobile will jump a notification asking permission for the reception of those files. Click on OK... and everything is ready!

The transfer takes place immediately, even if you are sending several high quality photos. All received files will appear in the Downloads folder, and if they are photos you can see them directly in the Huawei Share album that is created in the gallery of the destination mobile.


Chinese brand Huawei and Honor mobiles also feature a Huawei Share function for file sharing between phone and computer.

In this case, activating the Huawei Share function will turn the phone into another device on the network, as if it were another computer. Therefore, the access to the files that we have stored in the phone will be much faster, and very easy to configure.

With the Huawei Share switch on the smartphone, we would only have to access the mobile from the computer through the SMB (Server Message Block) protocol. The option is available for Windows and Mac computers and all computers that are compatible with this network device protocol.
