Last summer, Google officially announced “Share near” (“Share with nearby” in Spanish), a new feature for share files between Android devices in a simple, fast and secure way. Come on, what many have called “the Android AirDrop” for its great resemblance to the content delivery system offered by Apple.
So far, ‘Nearby Sharing’ has only allowed file sharing with one device, but Goole has been working on an update for some time that will allow for sending this content to different terminals
Transfers to nearby contacts and devices
XDA developers analyzed the APK of future version 21.15.12 of Google Play services to force nearby sharing features to come, including group transfer to share files on multiple devices at once.
As we can see in the video, this new group transfer function will allow us to send files to a maximum of four devices
In the pictures, we can see that the shipment is not all in one go, but you must manually accept the transfer to each terminal to do one at a time. Hopefully the latter is fixed in the final version.
Moreover, they discovered an improvement in the visibility of the device so that we can not only share files with close contacts, but also with any device nearby. However, there is the option to “temporarily use everyone’s mode” to better preserve our privacy. If you don’t mind, you can choose to “keep everyone mode all the time”.
Still no confirmation of when the update will be deployed (and the APK doesn’t confirm this), but given that these new features already seem to be working, it’s likely that Google will soon officially announce it.
