Google’s Nearby Share feature has been around for a while now, and it is a great way to share links, photos and more with family and friends. The app uses no data connection and doesn’t need the sending and receiving devices to be on the same Wi-Fi network. Now, Nearby Share also allows users to share apps to a nearby phone, just as fast and conveniently. Moreover, the Google Nearby Share feature doesn’t require a separate app and is ad-free and clutter-free unlike apps like SHAREit and Xender.
You still will not require cellular or Wi-Fi connectivity for sharing applications via Nearby Share. However, the device you are sharing with needs to be in close proximity. While indianexpress.com can confirm that the feature works and is present on all devices, not all devices may get this immediately. Here’s how you can share to another Android phone using Google Nearby Share in a few easy steps
Step 1: Open the Google Play Store
