Google Nearby Sharing allows you to share Android apps
Google launched the Nearby Sharing feature similar to Apple AirDrop in January this year to solve the problem that Android mobile phone manufacturers cannot communicate with each other in nearby data transmission. Nearby Sharing allows users to quickly transfer files, photos, and other data. Next, Google also hopes that users can use it to transfer applications.
Google stated in its official blog that the Nearby Sharing function allows users to quickly share apps from the Google Play Store with other nearby Android users even without Wi-Fi or mobile network. Users only need to enter the Play Store and click on the “Share Apps” menu in “My Apps & Games,” select the application you want to share from the applications and games list.
In contrast, iPhone users using Apple’s AirDrop sharing application can only share links to nearby devices. The recipient needs to jump to the App Store to download.
The principle of Google’s Nearby Sharing looks more like copying an application from one mobile phone to another mobile phone, which can be done without connecting to the network. Of course, the premise is that the shared application must at least be on the Google Play Store. The launch of this sharing application feature will be in the next few weeks.
