Portal_MainPushbullet have announced that they’ve almost finished on their biggest update ever to Pushbullet. In the meantime, Pushbullet have announced however that they have a new app for us called: Portal.

Pushbullet say,

Portal makes transferring files from your computer to your phone as simple as possible. It’s a brand new app made by us here at Pushbullet. We built Portal with a sole purpose—to make getting files onto your phone effortless, even if those files are very large or you have lots of files you want to transfer.

See it in action here:

Portal works by sending the files over your WiFi network. This means we can transfer files extremely quickly, and that they don’t count against your data plan.

Portal is very easy to use. Just open the app and pull up portal.pushbullet.com on your computer and you’re ready to go.

Using Chrome on your computer? You can drop entire folders and Portal will transfer them without a hitch.

To make sure Portal works great no matter what, we put it to the test by sending both files over 1GB in size, and hundreds of smaller files.

Portal shines brightest after you’ve transferred the files.

Getting files onto your phone is only half of the problem Portal solves. After all, once you’ve got the files on your phone, how do you open them?

Instead of having to go and dig through your device’s storage, just open the Portal app. You’ll see all the files and folders you’ve transferred, and you can browse, open, or share your files with just a tap.

If you’re the type that likes to browse your phone’s files, no problem. All of the files you transfer can be found in the Portal folder on your phone. If you’re running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or newer, you can even move this folder to be on your removable SD card!

Portal is deeply integrated with Android.
