[Features & Reviews] Introducing Mi Share: Share your files to the nearby Android devices

Greetings Mi Fans
We all have seen how Bluetooth came into feature phones and was used to share files at a speed that we might laugh at. Then came the smartphone era where sharing apps came into the play store which was much faster. But hey! Faster doesn't mean more convenient right?

So we decided to change the game completely and with MIUI 11 bring a sharing platform directly implemented into the system. No more 3rd party applications to ruin your experience. The latest sharing platform Mi Share integrated with MIUI is so easy to use that you will fall in love with it. The following required no tiring setups, no advertisements, no 3rd party applications, no interruptions and most importantly faster transfer speed without affecting your WiFi connection.

  • The specific settings are available in “Mi Share” preferences tab.
  • In order to access these settings please go to “Settings”  “Connection and Sharing”  “Mi Share”.

✒ Following is a representation of Mi Share on MIUI 11:


1. Go to the file you want to share no matter where the file is located. You can use the gallery, file manager or anything you want to. In this example, we are using the Gallery.

2. Simply tap on share and turn on Mi Share. But before you do so, make sure that your Wi-Fi is turned on.

3. When Mi Share has been turned on, you will see a list of devices available and ready to receive files. Tap on the device you want to send files to and voila.


1. To use Mi Share to receive files, make sure that your Wi-Fi is turned on and Mi Share as well. Mi Share will ask permissions for storage and some other things which must be accepted and you're no good to go.

2. Once the sender tries to send you something, your device will prompt you to accept or decline the request.

Note: For now Mi Share is compatible with Mi and Redmi Phones. Other brands like OPPO, vivo and realme will soon be compatible with Mi Share.

I hope you all will love this feature.
Please share your valuable comments and thoughts about this feature.

A special thanks to Deeptesh Biswas for helping me.
