Oppo, vivo and Xiaomi will bring peer to peer transmission of files without internet connection

OPPO, vivo and Xiaomi (in alphabetical order) announced a partnership to expand the Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance in the global market, while also welcoming more Android smartphone brands to join the movement.

The Alliance will allow users to transmit files, pictures and videos without the need for an internet connection, reflecting how OPPO and its innovative operating system – ColorOS – is open to cooperate with other platforms. File transfers are done using Wi-Fi P2P (Peer to Peer) technology, which is faster than Bluetooth without compromising users’ Wi-Fi connectivity. This also delivers an average transfer speed of 20MB/s.

In fact, all Android smartphones support WiFi direct which can accomplish the mission. The set up can be confusing and there are issues transferring among smartphones even though they use WiFi direct.
