With AirDrop, iPhone users have long enjoyed an easy way to share photos and files. Now Nearby Share, promises Android and Chrome OS owners the same ease of use.
Google is rolling this out in phases and you’ll need to update to the latest OS to get it. If it’s available to your phone, you’ll find it under your Connections option. Once turned on, Nearby becomes one of your share options when viewing a file. The recipient will also need this option active and will need to be relatively close to share content.
