One of the weak points of the Android experience will finally be fixed.
Apple has the most comprehensive and easy-to-use cross-device file sharing tool with Airdrop and Google obviously doesn’t like that .
Nearby Share , the Android alternative , is a little less than two years old since its official launch and has an annoying detail for many users.
You need to confirm EVERY file SEND when using Nearby Share . This is logical in the case of submissions to third parties, but it complicates workflows when a user wants to, for example, edit photos taken with their phone on a tablet .
Google will make Nearby Share more like Airdrop
Apple makes this much easier in Airdrop , allowing much more fluid shipments between own devices and Google is working on something very similar.
Mishaal Rahman shared on Twitter a preview of how Google would revamp Nearby Share , allowing pushes to your own devices that don’t need confirmation.
