Xiaomi, OPPO and Vivo team up to create a file-sharing app


Over the years Bluetooth, NFC and WiFi have been most preferred and used to transfer files between two phones coming from any brands. But as the technology has gone up the next level today it is still a tedious and boring process that makes using messaging apps As WhatsApp is more comfortable, despite the compression of the files which ridiculously degrades the quality of the file.

Although there are free applications like SHAREit or Xender that are compatible with several platforms but these are usually loaded with advertising. That is why Xiaomi, OPPO and Vivo have allied to create an app that simplifies the process of transferring files between smartphones .

These three brands are currently working on a project called Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance, where brands will contribute their knowledge to give rise to a data transfer application that will appear installed by default on Xiaomi, OPPO’s and Vivo smartphones. This means that this will be one of the largest ecosystems to transfer files because being 3 of the main 4 major Chinese players are involved in this alliance.

Exchanging files will now be a piece of cake

This application will use the Wi-Fi Direct protocol that allows high-speed file / data transfer without an Internet connection with a maximum data transfer rate of 20 MB / s. With this application, one can transfer any file format without any problem, be they images, documents, videos, audios and even APKs.

But the app will not be an exclusivity of the new phones of the brand since the respective layers of customization, based on Android, of each manufacturer, will be updated to include this app to transfer files to all the models available in the market of each One of the brands participating in its development. It will be available throughout this year and for free.

Although it has not yet been confirmed, it is expected that it is not an exclusivity of the 3 brands and Play Store allows you to download this app so that users with other brands of phones can also use it and simplify the transfer of files between phones of different brands.

The key to the system is knowing if the native file sharing application developed by this alliance will have ads or not. Xiaomi has already gone through different controversies due to the presence of advertising on their mobiles and it seems that in this case the thing is not going to be too different. Fortunately, we don’t think we have to wait too long to get started to using this app.
