Google’s take on Apple’s AirDrop feature comes in the form of Nearby Share, which has received a new update recently; that enables a new way to share files. Android didn’t come with a proprietary option to share files directly from one device to another in a simple manner.
Before the debut of Nearby Share, the user base of Android has relied on third-party applications; that help share the files from one Android device to another. Google has changed this with the introduction of Nearby Share on Android.
Nearby Share will Now Support Multiple Device Sharing
The Nearby Share has enabled the sharing of any type of file types such as photos, videos, documents; many more from any Android device to another swiftly. The tech giant took inspiration from Apple and brought this feature to Android users across the world. Google has extended this feature on the Windows devices as well that helps in sharing files from Android to Windows and vice versa.
Google after several years has announced an update for the Nearby Share on Android. The company has brought one of the most awaited features for the avid users of Nearby Share. The new update brings the ability to send files to multiple devices at a time, which was not present in the past. Addition of the multiple sharing will give the possibility of sending files to multiple recipients at one time.
The Nearby Share with this new feature will open a new way of sending files in a group manner; instead of sending files to one person at one go. Although, you still need to select each person from the sharing page to transfer the files for multiple users. The update has continued to the Chrome OS as well, where you can send and receive any type of files from your Android to the Chrome OS devices.
The latest sharing feature on the operating system has arrived with seasonal updates from Google. Along with the Nearby Share update, Google has brought many changes and improvements for the Google Messages, G board, Google TV, and more services that are part of the ecosystem.
