As we all know, AirDrop helps iPhone users to wirelessly share files and media at incredible speeds. Xiaomi, has now succeeded in bringing the AirDrop-like functionality of an iPhone into its latest Android MIUI 11 update called as Mi Share.
Using the latest option cross-device file sharing feature, Xiaomi users can now transfer files (pictures,videos, music, apps) to any nearby compatible devices.
To enable this feature users have to update their Xiaomi smartphone to the new Xiaomi MIUI 11. It can transfer files at a speed of up to 20 Mbps per second.
Henceforth, the compatible devices includes only Xiaomi and Redmi devices. The file sharing feature will however soon be expanded with devices such as Oppo, Vivo, and Realme.
