If you’ve got a fast Wi-Fi router, you really don’t need Feem’s Wi-Fi direct feature.
Use Feem’s Wi-Fi direct feature when there are no routers around you, or when you just want faster file transfers.
Feem’s Wi-Fi direct feature is also preferred when using public Wi-Fi services like those provided in hotels, Startbucks and shopping malls.
How Feem Wi-Fi Direct Works
Feem’s Wi-Fi Direct feature works by creating a new Wi-Fi hotspot for your device.
This is ideal when there’s no reliable Wi-Fi router around you.
You only need ONE of your devices to activate Feem’s Wi-Fi direct. The other devices should connect to the newly created Wi-Fi hotspot.
Wi-Fi Direct on Android and Windows 10
Feem’s Wi-Fi Direct works on Android and Windows 10 devices with the click of a button.
A new Wi-Fi hotspot will be created with a new name and password to connect to from your other devices.
If your device supports Wi-Fi direct, you will see the Wi-Fi Direct option inside Feem. Activate Wi-Fi Direct Mode by clicking on the Wi-Fi Direct option inside Feem.
Only one of of your devices needs to have Wi-Fi Direct enabled.
Upon activation, a random Wi-Fi hotspot is created with the name of the device, with a random password. Your other devices are expected to join this new Wi-Fi hotspot, which will show up in their list of Wi-Fi hotspots.
Wi-Fi Direct on Android (Alternative Method)

Why are file transfers on Feem’s Wi-Fi Direct so much faster than via a normal Wi-Fi router?
When you use Feem to transfer files between your devices via a normal Wi-Fi router, your transfer speeds get slashed in two.
That’s because the transfer first goes from DeviceA -> Router -> DeviceB. The router has to handle both incoming network traffic from DeviceA and outgoing network traffic to DeviceB, hence slashing your transfer speed into two.
With Feem’s Wi-Fi Direct, there is no router to slow down your file transfers. Your file transfers go from DeviceA directly to DeviceB, giving you maximum file transfer speeds, as allowed by your hardware.
