Vivo, OPPO, Xiaomi to roll out Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance globally
Smartphone companies Vivo, OPPO, and Xiaomi have announced that they are rolling out their newly-formed “Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance” system globally.
The global launch of the file transfer system was done in anticipation of 5G rollout across the world, with Vivo, OPPO, and Xiaomi expecting that the average file sizes will significantly increase with the availability of more content. The Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance system is a seamless, cross-platform file transfer service. The wireless file transfer system allows users of Vivo, OPPO, and Xiaomi to share files between their devices easily, without a need for third-party applications or network data. It supports the transfer of photos, videos, music, documents, and more.
Transfer speeds using the Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance (P2P) system can go up to 20 MB/s. Users need to switch on their WiFi or Bluetooth, turn on the P2P transfer under “menu”, and select the files to be transferred.
The feature will roll out in Vivo, OPPO, and Xiaomi products by February 2020.
