How to show Search/Transfers in split screen mode on FrostWire?

Since FrostWire 6.3.1 you can select how to show the transfers screen: as an individual tab or together below the search results in split view. On this post, you will learn how to use this new option.

Open FrostWire and you will see an individual tab for transfers.

We are SO HAPPY to announce this new FrostWire Plus for Android release. This version has a lot of new improvements and options that you’re going to love. First of all, we added a new ‘Seed’ action on ‘My Files’. Now you can create and seed a torrent of any file with a single touch. What can you do with this option? If you have a file that you want to share with your friends, you only click on Seed and then copy the magnet link and send it to your friends. It’s a really good way, for example, to share big files.


We also added a new handpicked file selection on .torrent downloads. So now you can download specific files from a torrent!

Fun fact about this release

This is the first time in 9 to 10 years the whole FrostWire team works on a build in the same physical place (for one day at least in Miami a couple of weeks ago)

Content Decentralization for a healthier, freer, uncensored Internet

Lot’s of work went into it from multiple world cities (Miami, Denver, Santiago-Chile, Warsaw-Poland) it’s a decentralized project after all… and starting this release we’ll be putting a lot more emphasis on being able to seed files with ease.
We feel the internet’s content is becoming way too centralized by cloud providers, and this goes against the DNA of the Internet which is decentralization and file sharing.

So Let’s Seed

A blog post and newsletter will be released explaining in detail all the features and updates of this new release, we hope you enjoy it.

An Easy Way to Protect Your Privacy Online!

Get a VPN!

Privacy is a Human Right and you must protect it. When you connect to the Internet, corporations and even your internet service provider can spy you. If you want to protect yourself and not let any stranger see your personal information, you need a VPN.


A VPN will secure your connection, no matter where you are. With a VPN whatever you do online is going to be transferred encrypted. That includes your internet searches, your personal & identifiable information you type into websites, your emails and private messages and the files you download or share. Yes, you also can use a VPN for FrostWire.

How does it work?

You have to sign up for a VPN service and obtain a username and password for authentication. You then download and install a very tiny piece of software or an app that, upon a sign in, lets you choose a location of where you want to connect to. Your device then connects to servers in that location and those servers then pass on the connection to wherever you wanted to go. Your destination website will see your connection as coming from the VPN servers and your identity will not be revealed. More here.

Does FrostWire work with VPN services?

FrostWire, both for Android and for Desktop, works seamlessly with most VPN services. This means that however you connect to the internet – with or without the VPN – FrostWire will still search and download without any adjustment in settings on your part.

What are you waiting to protect your privacy? Get a VPN today!
