Google’s Nearby Share now allows sharing apps to an Android smartphone

If you want to share an app on a smartphone that is running the Android operating system, then there are a lot of ways to do so. However, Google has now added a new feature to Nearby Share through which apps sharing between the smartphones will become a lot easier. Nearby Share is an in-built feature of the Android operating system which allows the users to share files between devices without using any third party or a specific app. 

Although it is still new and was announced in August last year, the feature was meant to compete with the iOS feature AirDrop that is used on the iPhone. Nearby Share comes with similar functionality and is available for Android devices running version 6.0 or later. The feature can be used to share images, links, and files with nearby Android devices, and with the new addition, even apps could be shared easily now. 

When you go to Google Play Store app>>My Apps, you will notice a new tab called “Share“, which is located next to the Library and is already available to use. From there, the user will be able to select the option of sending or receiving the apps. The feature would only work when you activate the location services and will provide you with a list of installed apps in case you want to send the app to a different Android smartphone. Once selected, the nearby devices will be searched, and once selected, the app will automatically transfer to the nearby device.
