    • Wi-Fi Direct, initially called Wi-Fi P2P, is a Wi-Fi standard enabling devices to easily connect with each other without requiring a wireless access point.
    • It is usable for everything from internet browsing to file transfer,and to communicate with more than one device simultaneously at typical Wi-Fi speeds.
    • One advantage of Wi-Fi Direct is the ability to connect devices even if they are from different manufacturers.
    • Only one of the Wi-Fi devices needs to be compliant with Wi-Fi Direct to establish a peer-to-peer connection that transfers data directly between them with greatly reduced setup.


    We need apps like Shareit, Superbeam, Xender to come soon to the platform.

    Yep. They work cross platform as well... I hope Microsoft makes WiFi Direct P2P Transfers standard in WP10. I have not read too far, but it seems as though 3rd party developers do not have the capacity to create app->app WiFi direct apps for WP.

    Let's hope Win10 solve the problem.

    When you try to send files from WP to Android via Shareit, it's pretty easy & same but problem occurs while receiving. MS doesn't let apps turn on Internet sharing or Wi-Fi hotspot automatically. If this happens, it would become similar like Android in functionalities :)
