New Nearby Share feature will allow sharing applications from play store with nearby users without internet
This summer, Google began public testing of a new Nearby Share feature that lets you share photos, videos, and links with other Android device owners. Now the search giant announced the expansion of the functionality of a useful service, whose users will also be able to share applications from Google Play with other gadgets.
Google has not disclosed any technical details about the new feature yet, but says it will be part of an upcoming update that will be available in the coming weeks.
The upcoming Nearby Share update will allow you to share apps from Google Play with people around you using your Android smartphone, even if you don't have cellular or Wi-Fi- says Google.
According to the available information, in the section "My applications and games" in the company store a new menu "Share applications" will appear. By clicking on the "Nearby" icon, the owner of the gadget will be able to select a user who is nearby and send the desired program to his device, even if the receiving party does not have an active Internet connection, or it is too slow.
