The short answer for this is the PhotoSync app. Yes, the fastest way to transfer your photos and videos from Android to Mac or Windows or any computer over WiFi. The app is a paid app and comes with a trial. But I recommend you to buy the app to use the app to the fullest.
It’s a two-way transfer between your Phone and Computer over WiFi.
Over the years, I have used services like Xender, AirDroid and even those apps which had ugly UI. Services like Xender and AirDroid let you browse your phone’s content on the computer but I found the concept really messy for transferring a photo to my computer over WiFi. First, you need to open the app on your phone then open the app (or web app) on your computer then connect both devices. And all this for transferring a single screenshot?
If I had to use the phone in the first place then why shouldn’t I transfer it from there right away? Recently I came across a fantastic app called PhotoSync. Initially, I needed this app to backup and sync photos and videos to the NAS cloud but then I found that this app has other great features too. The best thing is that this app transfers the photos and videos over WiFi with good transfer speed. Bye Android File Transfer, You suck on Mac.
