Using Nearby Share, migrating mail to Gmail, and more
By Paolo Amoroso • Issue #37 • View online
Nearby Share is Google’s take on Apple’s AirDrop system for sharing files between devices in proximity. It has hit Android and is coming soon to Chrome, thus extending to the desktop.
Transferring images, PDF documents, or other files across devices of different users is not the most interesting use case for me. What excites me is moving content across form factors, such as sharing a web page from my Android phone to my Chromebox. This makes it possible, for example, to continue and move to the desktop a task started on a phone. Think researching in more depth an article read on a phone.
In the meantime, let’s learn to use Nearby Share on Android with the tutorial in this issue.
