Mobile giants Vivo, OPPO and Xiaomi officially announces its partnership to bring a new cross-brand wireless file transfer system for customers. With the newly formed Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance, the companies hope to “drive the next generation of mobile experience” and collaborate to deliver new technological breakthroughs.
The new file transfer system will allow smartphones and devices from the three brands to send files from one another without the need for any third-party applications. It supports multiple file formats such as photos, videos, music, documents, and more.
Vivo, OPPO and Xiaomi all share a strong user base, and such partnership will benefit even more consumers globally. For Vivo, this partnership reinforces our commitment to bringing a fast, secure, first-in-class mobile experience by making it even easier for our users to share files with their friends wirelessly. We will continue to bring more strategic partnerships like this for our users across the globe.Spark Ni, Senior Vice President of Vivo
The new service works like Apple’s Air Drop or Huawei Share. It uses Bluetooth for pairing and uses Wi-Fi P2P (Peer to Peer) technology for the data transfer. It will use high-speed protocols with transfer speeds of up to 20Mbps.
To transfer files, users just need to turn on their Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, or turn on the function under the menu system, and select the files they wish to share. If the other party also has that function turned on, an icon will pop-up to notify them. Once confirmed, the selected files will be transferred.
The new feature will gradually roll out to new Vivo, OPPO and Xiaomi products in different markets starting February 2020. It is also open to other manufacturers who wish to be a part of the alliance.
