Create a Wi-Fi hotspot & Connect the deviceSo as we are transferring files over Wi-Fi, the two devices between which you want to share files must be on same Wi-Fi network. As here we are assuming that there are no Wi-Fi networks around you, we have to create a Wi-Fi hotspot on one of the devices and connect other device to this hotspot so that they will be on same network.
To create a Wi-Fi hotspot on your mobile- Go to Settings > Tethering & Wi-Fi Hotspot (Found Under Under Wireless & Networks) and Check the option Wi-Fi Hotspot. Now on the second device turn on Wi-Fi and connect it to the hotspot we have just created on the first device. You may also connect more devices to this hotspot and transfer files to any of them.
