Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo in pact for cross-brand file transfer tech

Apple AirDrop is something many Android users are jealous of. This feature should be relying on Bluetooth and NFC connectivity for the file transfer, or something else they are working on.

Chinese giants Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi may compete for a larger chunk of the pie in the smartphone market, but they've now chose to partner up and build a new wireless file transfer protocol for its Android-backed devices.

According to the official introduction, smartphones from all three brands will have the cross-platform transfer feature without the need of a third-party application.

They have also asked other smartphone companies to join the alliance.

If you're eager to try out this AirDrop for Android-like service, well, a beta version of the file transfer feature should become available by the end of this month. There is no indication whether Huawei or other Chinese companies are or aren't interested in joining the original trio. The feature will be removed from Android Q OS and in its place, the operating system will integrate another feature similar to its Fast Share functionality. Personally, this is surely a convenient way for us to share media files together.

Files Go app takes advantage of 5GHz Wi-Fi Direct capability in supported devices to support the highest transfer speeds possible. Encryption is employed to protect the privacy of those using the app.
