Re: How to use WiFi Direct in XPERIA Z1

To be able to send a file via Wi-Fi direct you'll need to use an application that supports Wi-Fi direct and also pair your phone with the other device.

 

To Wi-Fi pair your phone with another device go to, Settings > Wi-Fi > Options > Wi-Fi direct.

xperia z1 does not have full native support for wifi direct lke the Samsung mobiles do..

 

for e.g. you cant send movies via wifi direct using the native movies app.

 

You will have to install File Commander or Office suite on the mobile to which you intend to send the files to make this work.

Ho i'm a z5 since 4 day and i' am found this thread now. You'll need to install office suite to both devices and just using it from sharing menu. I don't know if you still have a Xperia but it is awesome brother ☺
