When it comes in experimenting and innovative features, Google it’s my all time favourite tech company. It implements new features as well as test new features on a regular basis and all of them becomes very handy for the general users. Well, now the developers of the Mountain View company Google is working on a new tool called Fast Share and this will allow users to transfer files quickly, this will also give a head to head competition with Apple AirDrop.
The Fast Share is currently testing on Android and that can be used to share images and other media files on your phone, it will also allow sharing the URLs and snippets of text — “to nearby devices without internet.”
Google places the new option in the system share sheet and the same is currently using Google’s blue diamond-shaped Nearby icon. You guys can also enable the sharing process by heading to System Settings > Google > Fast Share.
How does the setup work?
The new feature utilizes Bluetooth to start the process and then subsequently transfers files over a direct Wi-Fi connection, and this will allow larger files to be transferred much more quickly.
How to share files?
You need to enter a “Device name” and tap “Turn on.” It requires Bluetooth and Location to be enabled, with physical proximity also factors in. Once the recipient is selected from a grid of “nearby devices,” a fullscreen UI will note what is being shared.
As of now, we don’t have any information about the availability of the feature. But we hope that the developers of Google will test and roll out the feature globally very soon. We would like to hear your thoughts about the new feature in the comments section below. We recommend you to stay tuned with us for the latest updates from the world of tech at your fingertips.
