Nearby sharing is a feature launched by Google last year among Android users in Europe. This feature is Google’s answer to Apple’s AirDrop. Thanks to it, it is possible to share files with a person close to us without the need for cables, and recently it is even possible to share applications.
Until now, close sharing allows you to share files or apps with just one person. Fortunately, it looks like Google is going to change this soon, as they prepare to allow share files with several people at the same time using this tool on your android phone.
Sharing apps from Google Play is now possible with nearby sharing
Google is already introducing the ability to share apps from the Play Store with other nearby Android phones using nearby sharing.
Share files with multiple people with Share near me
In an upcoming update, which should arrive shortly, Nearby Sharing will expand the options available when sharing files with other users. It will not only be possible to share files with one person, but new options will be introduced, such as Contacts or Everyone. This way, you will be able to choose who to share files with using this method.
This option will allow you to see for example which of your contacts are close and they use this function, in order to share files with this method. In addition, a temporary mode will be entered, which will return to its normal mode after 5 minutes. A new menu for this function will also be introduced on the mobile home screen. Here you can also choose who to share these files with.
This function will not share these files or information with all selected devices at the same time, but it will be sent one by one, so it could be a bit slow process if there are many devices. Although that may change in the face of a final version of this feature.
This is a big change for nearby sharing, which is looking to become one of the key functions of Android mobiles. Google is therefore working on a notable improvement of this tool on their phones. Although for the moment we don’t know when he will arrive
