Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo Join Hands to Introduce New-Age File Transfer Service

Android did not normally have a cross-brand file transfer option. This seems to be changing quite soon. The three major Chinese smartphone makers – Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo have decided to collaborate on a service that is expected to work on the lines of AirDrop.

The new file transfer service is expected to offer the transfer speeds of up to 20 MB per second. In fact, while the collaboration is currently between the three players, it is expected that more Android OEM device makers are likely to join the bandwagon.

This will be a peer to peer file transfer protocol and will be much similar to the AirDrop service from Apple. The information was shared by Xiaomi on the Chinese social media network, WeChat and claimed that the pairing would be done through Bluetooth.

A Beta version of the service will be rolled out by the End of August. The file transfer will be limited to the phones from Xiaomi, Vivo, and Oppo in the beginning, and the WeChat post welcomes other OEM makers to join the platform.

It should be noticed that Google had attempted its hands in offering a cross-brand file transfer service. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich version had the feature named Android Beam that needed NFC. The feature is being removed with Android Q, while Android Q will now feature a new Fast Share. Given the fact that Huawei has captured over 34 percent of the market share, we would expect them to be the next manufacturer to join the platform.
