China’s ‘AirDrop for Android’ now works with OnePlus and more
The file transfer protocol established by Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo last year now applies to four more Chinese brands
Last year, three of China’s largest smartphone brands said they were launching a wireless peer-to-peer file transfer protocol that would work across their devices, sort of like an Android version of Apple’s AirDrop. Now four more brands are joining the alliance started by Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo.
Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo are currently the world’s best-selling Chinese smartphone brands after Huawei, which is notably absent from the alliance. Brands in the alliance reach nearly 400 million users, according to Thursday’s announcement.
