And three Android markers are joining the list of AirDrop clones with a new file transfer tech that works nearly like AirDrop. But when it comes to allowing users to share files, it looks like they're willing to team up.
Google itself has had a feature since 2011's Ice Cream Sandwich called Android Beam that uses NFC to share "photos, videos, contact information, links to webpages, navigation directions, YouTube URLs, and more" by tapping two devices together. First and foremost, the partnership seeks to create a file-sharing system for allowing a one-step, direct file sharing channel that will remove the hassle of installing a dedicated, third-party file sharing app.
The peer-to-peer protocol will let users transfer files by Bluetooth between Xiaomi, OPPO and Vivo similar to Apple's Airdrop that allows file transfers between Apple devices. You can use ShareIt or Files Go for all your file-sharing needs but who wants another app on their phone for the same.
