Google To Launch New Nearby Share Feature Faster than Xender

Avatar of Gabriel Ojeh





Google all sets to launch its Nearby Shear feature for andriod devices. This feature is similar to the Apple’s AirDrop, it allows users to share files. pictures, videos, links directly between any andriod running on Andriod 6 to newer versions of Andriod 11 this feature as been made available to some of the pixels devices and Samsung aswell.

The AirDrop feature lets iPhone users share heavy files, images, videos and much more simply by tapping on the AirDrop button. It allows seamless file sharing between Apple devices once they are paired. In AirDrop, you can choose your visibility to prevent any unwanted user to send files to your phone. Similarly in Android’s nearby feature, you need to switch the Nearby Share button on and then wait for the nearby devices to appear in your zone.

In like manner, this feature lets you choose your visibility. The users will be given three visibility options including “all”, “some” and “hidden”. If you choose “all” option, you will be visible to all contacts and users in your area if you switch the Nearby Feature on. However, if you select “some” you will only be visible to select contacts and if you choose “stay hidden” you will not appear in any Android users’ nearby share. You will get the option of accepting or declining requests when someone tries to send you a file on using the Nearby feature. To use this feature, you wouldn’t require any internet connection. You and the receiver should have the Nearby Share feature on your devices to send or receive files.

 As the AirDrop lets Apple iPhone users share files with MacBooks, Android’s Nearby Share feature would also enable sharing between Android phones and Chromebooks in the coming months. However, now that Google is slowly rolling out this feature for some of the Android users, it would take a little while to make the sharing possible between the Android phones and Chromebooks but it will surely happen in the coming months. Hence, talking about the this, a Google spokesperson had told The Verge that it has “plan[s] to try to expand the feature to additional platforms in the near future.”

However, one need to remember that the Nearby Share feature will work only between Android devices so don’t try to send files to an iPhone using the feature.
