Mi drop has made things easy for us. Using Mi drop you can send files like photos, videos, audio files, apps and much more from one device to another within seconds.
Bluetooth transfer surely makes us wait for long and USB transfers are quite cumbersome sometimes. We all need a quick way of sharing and files and something that is safe to use.

Mi drop uses the most advanced Wi-Fi Direct technology to transfer data between devices quickly. It’s quite similar to the technology used in Airdrop, Xender and ShareIt.
In the Wi-Fi Direct technology, a direct link is created between both the devices by creating a kind of a personal Wi-Fi zone. This way a private network is created and files are transferred from one device to another in a very short span of time.
Do you know what the best part is? The data and the file transfer don’t need any internet connection for the transfer to take place. So you can transfer files anytime and anywhere without worrying about a stable internet connection.
The reason for Mi drop having a huge user base lies in the fact that the devices participating in data and file transfer need not necessarily be Mi products. Users using devices of different brands can easily use Mi drop on their devices.
