Learn how you can easily transfer files to and from your Android device on a macOS computer by using Android File Transfer Tool.
If you are a MacOS user and happen to own an Android phone, Android File Transfer, commonly known as ATF, is a must-have tool for you. Android File Transfer is a free software by Google which basically a files manager and explorer app for Mac to browse and transfer files between your Android device and MacOS powered computer. It works with every smartphone out there, except for those running Android 9 Pie. The reason behind the issue with Android Pie devices is that Android Pie is launched recently and only a marginal chunk of phones( pixel phones, essential phone, OnePlus 6 and Sony Xperia XZ3) runs on the stable built of Android Pie as result of which Google has not yet optimized the application for Android Pie users. I hope that it will start working flawlessly in a couple of weeks from now.
