How to create ZIP file in Android mobile


Hello and welcome to my new article. In this, we are going to learn how to create or convert any file into zip format in your android mobile phone. And the reason why we create a zip file in android mobile is that it can compress one or more together in one place and because of compression it reduces the size of your files and then you can easily share your files through Whatsapp, Bluetooth, and email, etc. Now let’s move on to our topic of creating a zip file in android step by step.

   Almost all the mobile phone has a built-in feature of converting a file into zip format.  But in some cases, if android mobile is not able to create a zip file, then we download the app from the play store to convert our files in zipping, which we discuss later in this article.

  • Open your file manager and locate one or more files either with jpg, doc, pdf extension, or any software to create one zip file.
  • Now select the files and look for an option to compress.

  • When you click on the compress option it will open new popup windows with different options.
  • First of all, enter the name of your file.
  • Then choose your compression type or archive format from the drop-down list. For example 7z, zip, tar, etc.
  •  Now choose a compression level fast, fastest, ultra, normal, etc.
  • Then don’t change your encryption option. 
  • Now set the password of your zip file.
  • And if you wanted to delete the selected files after compression then check the option of delete source files after compression.
  • Now, click on the ok button and it will create your zip file easily.
