Google has announced at CES 2022 that they will launch a service that allows Windows and Android users to send and receive files, now Google has officially released Nearby Share Beta which is the service they announced, Saturday (01/04).
Nearby Share Beta is a service developed by Google, this service can be downloaded and installed directly on Android as well as Windows PCs, its feature allows users to be able to send and receive files between Windows and Android. Now Nearby Share Beta is available via the following link.
Users can also install Nearby Share Beta on Windows 10 and Windows 11, it is recommended to use the 64-bit version. But, unfortunately Nearby Share Beta still does not provide support for devices that use ARM. Another condition for using this service is to enable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on your Windows PC.
Google claims that Nearby Share Beta is capable of shipping within 16 feet or 5 meters, access provided is certainly a much easier and also fast delivery. Nearby Share Beta allows users to share images, videos, documents and audio or even folders directly to Android or vice versa.
