Specifically, within this range, the new Xiaomi device allows intercom communications from 1 to 1, from 1 to many (allowing you to “create an independent team”), without neglecting bi-directional voice calls. Also thanks to the above connectivity, updates via OTA are supported, so that other functions can also be enabled in the future.
