Hello, Mi Fans!
We just dropped an update to your favorite app, Mi Drop, to ease out the process of transferring content in every possible direction. Adding to the most cleaner and user-friendly UI, Mi Drop now supports Connect to PC feature to better facilitate the transfer, not just phone to phone but to PC as well. Although it’s super easy to setup and just two clicks away, know how to use it below:

Update or download Mi Drop App here

How to manage files on PC using Mi Drop
  • Open Mi Drop - settings - connect to computer
  • Press ‘Start’ to use FTP mode
  • Enter the same web address in Browser or File manager of your PC

  • To transfer content both ways, use ‘Windows File Explorer’ to open the address (or any file explorer of your choice)
  • You should be on same Wi-Fi network for both the devices
  • You don’t need Mi File Explorer to use this
