Xiaomi has introduced this cross-brand technology as Mi Share on MIUI 11, while other brands in the above-mentioned list are yet to roll-out the new file-sharing technology to their users. We tried transferring large files from Redmi Note 7 Pro to POCO F1, both running MIUI 11 Stable and here is an overview of Mi Share.
