New Delhi. In today’s world of technology, we keep different types of files in our phones. On a daily basis, we also share these files with other people when needed. For this, there is a Bluetooth feature in Android phones, but it takes more time to share large files than this. In such a situation, we have to download third party sharing apps in our phone, which take extra space in the phone. In such a situation, on August 4, 2020, Google launched the Nearby Share feature for Android phones.

What is Nearby Share

Nearby Share is such a sharing feature present in Android phones that allows you to easily transfer files from one Android phone to another Android phone. It does not require any third party app. Just as Apple’s iPhone has the AirDrop sharing feature, Android phones have the Nearby Share feature. This feature works only on Android 6.0 and above operating system.
