The Nearby Share feature has been built directly into Android for many years, but until recently it could only be used between phones. Essentially, Nearby Share allows users to transfer files between devices over a local wireless connection, eliminating the need for an Internet connection and enabling faster speeds than standard Bluetooth transfers can.

In addition, Google has reached an agreement with some PC manufacturers with Windows pre-installed – they will now come with the Nearby Share application pre-installed. Users can also install Nearby Share for Windows from the official website .
