Default What methods are there to transfer files PC to phone using Wifi?

I use PushBullet to move files through wifi when i'm at home but It seems to limit at 25MB. Is there a similar method or something not much more difficult method to send larger files?

I usually use Airdroid. There's no file size limit if your devices are on the same network. It also supports remote connections, but there are limits there.

I use solid explorer but any files manager that supports samba shares (es, astro etc)

ES File Explorer also works well and is completely free.

I have always used AirDroid and never had a problem both in the application or size restrictions. I've moved 200+MB files before without any issue. Best part is that sometimes it is even faster to use then USB and we all know how fast USB moves in Windows.
