Apple for iOS, iPad OS and mac OS
In this regard, Android is undoubtedly behind, because this open source system has not yet provided a system-level implementation similar to the AirDrop feature, and users must rely on third-party solutions to complete local file transfer tasks. Although Android Beam, which used NFC technology to implement similar features, was born, the feature was not fully utilized and popularized, and was eventually abandoned.
recentlyForeign media coverageGoogle is developing AirDrop-like features for Android. The report noted that the feature was temporarily named Nearby Sharing. Information exposed according to XDAnearbySharing will be integrated into the next generation of Android systems.
XDA said that at present, nearby sharing may be adjusted. At this stage, the use experience is not perfect, and there may still be errors, such as the situation that the received pictures cannot be opened in the image viewer in the video displayed by XDA. However, the actual measurement shows that after point-to-point connection through Wi Fi, the actual transmission speed of nearby sharing is faster than that of traditional Bluetooth.
Google is expected to release this feature at this year's I / O conference. Of course, it may release nearby sharing ahead of time.
It is worth noting that Samsung may add a sharing feature called quick share to the galaxy S20 series. Oppo, vivo, Xiaomi and other domestic mobile phone manufacturers have also cooperated to promote the use of unified agreements for different brands, so as to realize the quick sharing function on their own Android phones. Of course, Google's system level nearing sharing feature is more versatile on Android devices, so it may be better. However, in terms of localization and UX, domestic mobile phone manufacturers know more about the needs of users. We may as well wait and see.
