Wi-Fi Direct

With Wi-Fi Direct, you can establish a WLAN connection directly to another compatible device. This method does not require an access point like a router. With Wi-Fi Direct, you can exchange files wirelessly between two devices. Thanks to the WLAN standard, you can also transfer files at much higher speeds, such as Bluetooth.

Another advantage of Wi-Fi Direct over Bluetooth is the much faster transfer rate, which means you can transfer large files like videos/movies in seconds.
