The popular Chinese manufacturers Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo, have collaborated to launch a new ‘AirDrop’ – like feature across their Android devices recently. It is called “Inter-Transfer Alliance,” which can transfer files similar to Apple’ AirDrop feature between the cross-brands, including the aforementioned brands. Meaning, the users using either of the Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo brand smartphones can now have a better file sharing experience.
The mutual alliance across these brands allow the users to exchange files including — photos, documents, audio files, zip files, videos, and more directly and quickly across cross-brand platforms. Despite the fact that all the phones are Android phones, they run on different tweaked versions of Android, which include MIUI, ColorOS, and FuntouchOS. The File Transfer is said to be carried out through Bluetooth and not the cellular data or Wi-Fi connection. This new inter-transfer alliance promises to make the file transfer at much higher transfers speeds of up to 20Mbps.
Moreover, it is believed that the new file-transfer system across cross brands’ devices is an open-source protocol, wherein, the other Android OEM makers are welcomed to join for further creating a smoother and efficient mobile files transfers across multiple devices more swiftly. Moreover, the first beta of this new file transfer protocol is said to be made available by the end of this month.
