To provide easy and effortless file sharing experience to users with different brands World-leading smartphone brands OPPO, vivo, and Xiaomi teamed up to form the Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance under the protocol for high-speed WiFi Direct transfer across mobile devices. The Alliance will allow users to transfer files, pictures, and videos without using any 3rd party apps such as ShareIt, Xender, FilesGo, etc.
The file transfer function scans devices using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) that boasts a broader range as well as lower power consumption, and it transmits files using Wi-Fi P2P (Peer to Peer) technology, which is faster than Bluetooth but will not compromise users’ Wi-Fi connectivity. So without using the Internet or Mobile Data, users will be able to transfer the files between two smartphones with a speed of upto 20MB per second.
