Instant and stable connection with low power consumption
The wireless file transfer system provides a streamlined mobile experience which does not require internet connection.
Wi-Fi P2P technology
It uses Bluetooth for fast pairing and Wi-Fi P2P (Peer to Peer) technology to transfer data, enabling an instant, stable and high-speed connection between devices with low power consumption.
This technology offers an average 20MB/s transfer speed. The Wi-Fi P2P technology does not interrupt Wi-Fi connection. So users remains connected and continue their activities on the device during the file transfer.
Users just need to turn on their Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, or turn on the function under “menu” to select the files that they wish to share. If the other user device has the function turned on, an icon will pop-up to notify the user. And post confirmation, the selected files gets transferred.

The three brands will continue to openly collaborate to deliver new technological breakthroughs. The alliance is open to have more brands participate and expand the ecosystem in the future.
This technology feature will be available across all new vivo products in different markets gradually from February 2020.
