OPPO also launched a new Cross-Screen Interconnection feature to simplify connectivity between phones and personal computers. According to the company, it permits users to navigate their phones with their PCs. This reportedly works with a majority of Windows 10 laptops from mainstream brands.

Moreover, the ColorOS 12 also has  Car Screen Projection features that support a lot of third-party apps. This includes Kuwo, Ximalaya, Baidu Maps, AutoNavi, etc.
