Android Update: File Transfer Becomes Easier than Ever and it Rivals Apple’s AirDrop

In this age of technology addiction, file transfer is playing a major role in our lives. Let’s say you have a laptop at your work that you carry around when you travel, and you need to finish some projects, but you also own a smartphone that you use to receive important things via email. Surely you need an easy and comfortable file transfer system to pass those files from one device to another effortlessly.

The software engineers have thought about such a scenario and therefore have come with a great file transfer system for millions of Android phones. Therefore, the anticipated “Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance” will even rival Apple’s AirDrop and solve once and for all the lack of a powerful file transfer system on Android.

Vivo, Oppo and Xiaomi are receiving it

These Chinese companies are the first that will be receiving the new Android update for millions of their smartphones. Surely you can always use the good old Bluetooth or upload your files to a cloud and download them afterward from another device, but simplifying things a lot with an app that resembles AirDrop can only be welcomed.

Xiaomi has confirmed that the new file transfer feature is now working on almost all devices that are running Android 9 Pie or Android 10. The ones that haven’t got the update are Redmi 6 Pro, Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, Redmi 7A, Redmi 7, Redmi S2, Redmi 8, Redmi 8A, Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8T.

On the other hand, all the Oppo phones equipped with Android 10 have gotten the new file transfer system. The company announced that Find Series, Reno Series, R Series, F Series, A Series and K3 would also get the feature in due course.

As for Vivo, its phones will be getting the new Android file transfer feature starting next month.

File sharing has just become easier than ever, and we can look at the future with optimism to see what tech companies are preparing next for its users.
