How to use Xiaomi's Mi Drop app to send and receive files faster

08 December 2017 3

With the latest MIUI 9, Xiaomi released an improved version of its Mi Drop file sharing app. It brings a lot of changes which make the whole user experience a lot better than it was on the older version. The best part of the new version is that it is not limited to Xiaomi devices anymore and is now available for all Android devices. The app basically allows you to send and receive files from other Android users faster and in a convenient way.

In this tutorial, we will tell you how to use Mi Drop app to send and receive files faster. So without further ado, let's get started.

Step 1: Download and install Mi Drop on your Android device.

Step 2: Launch the app and grant permissions it asks. This will take you to the app's home screen where you will find two options: Send and Receive.


Step 3: Tap Send option which will show files on your Android device divided into different categories. Tap on any category to see files available and select the ones you want to send. Once selected, tap Send button at the bottom.


Step 4: Tap Receive option on the device you want to receive those files. This will make receiver's device name visible on sender's device. The sender needs to tap on the receiver's device name to start sending files. Once he does this, the receiver will get a request which he needs to allow.


Step 5: Now, the file sharing process will start and you will see the progress in real-time. Once all files have been sent successfully, you can either choose to exit the session or continue to send/receive more files.


This way, you can send or receive files using Mi Drop app on your Android device with ease. The whole process is very straightforward with no complicated or hard to remember steps. Another good thing is that even if the sending process gets interrupted because of any reason, you can resume it without having to start everything all over.
