Although you’re not a Huawei smartphone user, you can still enjoy the benefits that its newest Share Kit feature offers. With this feature, other android devices can now connect faster than ever with any Huawei devices through this sharing application.
Sending and receiving files will no longer take that much time as you don’t have to wait endlessly to receive the desired files. Here we’ll show you how you can integrate your android device through Huawei’s awesome Share Kit.
Android smartphone requirements to prepare
Just like any tool unfamiliar to your android smartphone, you will need to tweak some stuff or apply changes to enable the app.
1. Check your smartphone’s Development Package Name, and it should be: sharekit-maven-188.8.131.520.zip.
2. The smartphone’s Development should also be as follows: sharekit-maven-184.108.40.2060.zip – com – huawei – connect – sharekit – 220.127.116.110 – sharekit-18.104.22.1680.aar.
3. You will need to prep your smartphone’s integration precautions, such as development tools, debugging, and specific APIs. Huawei strictly needs this information so other Android devices can successfully share files and data with Huawei device users.
4. Also, consider the smartphone’s environment requirements. The phone has to have a DevEco Studio (Huawei IDE) installed or whichever is the latest update.
5. The smartphone has to be at least an Android 8.0 model, can run Huawei’s EMUI 9.0 and studio development V3.0.1. As long as your smartphone has the latest update, you should be good.
Note: The Share Kit software can take up your RAM’s space of 20 MB and ROM of at least 5 MB. It only supports a direct wifi connection of 5 GHz channel and the recent 4.0 Bluetooth feature.
Integrating your android device to Huawei Share Kit
Step 1 Go ahead, click the Huawei Share App, and click Android Studio Version 3.3.2.
Step 2 You will be prompted with choices to choose from, then pick the first choice option button: Start a New Android Studio Project.
Step 3 Click the Phone and Tablet option button then select from among the choices: Empty Activity option button.
Step 4 Proceed to configure the new project and enter your desired file name. It will then update the package name and save location.
Step 5 Change the language option to Java and the minimum API level to API 15: Android 4.0.3 (IceCreamSandwich).
Step 6 Verify all the details. Once done, refer down below for the following steps and click Finish.
Step 7 To add dependencies, you’ll need to create a directory Gradle at the code repository part of the project. Once the Gradle is created, you can already start adding dependencies. Once done, click the option button Sync Now.
To test if your Android device can now access Huawei Share Kit, have a friend with a Huawei device to sample file sharing. If it transfers easy-peasy, then good job! If not, verify the instructions or visit the Huawei website for troubleshooting.
