Is it possible to transfer an epub from an Android phone to a Kobo reader not using the Kobo app?

For links, getpocket provides a way: I send the link to add@getpocket.com where I registered my email address and then I can synchronise under Articles on my Kobo reader via wifi.

Another way could be to use a server app for Android I could share my epub with and I could get the file to my Kobo reader via wifi.

Is either of these -- or some other method -- doable between an Android phone and a Kobo reader?

  • Why don't you try your own suggestions. Why do you want other suggestions? My own preference is never to use wifi. Things may also depend on whether your books have DRM, – babou Aug 21 '19 at 0:06

Assuming the book(s) have no DRM, this is what I do:

  1. Connect your phone to your computer and move the epub onto your computer.

  2. Import the epub into Calibre.

  3. Connect your Kobo to your computer.

  4. Use Calibre to load the epub onto your Kobo.



It turned out that Kobo does have a web browser under Settings/Beta Features. There I can log in to my gmail account and fetch the electronic book I send from my Android phone. So I do not need a desktop/notebook computer to do this.
