Nearby Share “Self-Share” Mode Coming To Android
According to recent reports, a new Nearby Share feature is coming to Android. This feature was seen in the most recent version of the Google Play Services app, though currently dormant.
Nearby Share will have a new option called “Your Devices” which would list devices in your proximity that are also on the same Google Account. This would directly begin transferring a file over to a receiving device without needing to approve the transfer.
The new feature Nearby Share’s will allow you to quickly share files to other devices signed into the same google account without needing to approve the share using the “self-share” mode.
