As early as last June, foreign media 9to5google had already revealed that Google was developing the Android beam quick sharing function competing with airdrop. Earlier this year, it was renamed "share nearby," but unfortunately it was not released.good news, in the latest developer preview, the company has confirmed this new feature in the Android 11DP2.
The known problem section of the Android platform describes a UI error that can not be transmitted successfully on the Pixel 4.
When the fast file sharing function is used between two pixel 4 intelligent machines, although the transmission work has been completed, the user interface of the receiving end prompts that the file has not been received.
Apparently, Google's internal employees are already using this kind ofApple AirDrop nearby file sharing function. It may be a bit powerful in terms of what the release notes refer to, so the development team needs more time to troubleshoot vulnerabilities.
In addition, this feature may not be exclusive to Android 11, but as part of Google play services, to maintain backward compatibility with the Android ecosystem.
