A new line of code recently discovered by Google suggests that users will soon be able to send content to four people at once using Android’s “Nearby Share” feature. Google’s answer to Apple’s AirDrop is Nearby Share, which works on Chromebooks and Android smartphones. Nearby Share, unlike AirDrop, isn’t enabled by default on all Android devices, so you’ll have to go into the Settings app to enable it. It’s under the heading ‘Bluetooth & Device Connection’ in Settings.
Currently, you can only send files to one person at a time, but the ability to send an item to four people is on the way, according to Mishaal Rahman, editor-in-chief of XDA Developers. Rahman was able to get the feature partially working on his phone after some tweaking, indicating that it will be released sooner rather than later. Nearby Share is currently hidden in the Settings of most Android devices, so Google should continue to improve it until it becomes as common as AirDrop.
