In a statement to Android Police, Google said, “We’re currently conducting a beta test of a new Nearby Share feature that we plan to share more information on in the future.
Nearby Sharing is a feature that allows users to share a variety of things with other Android devices that are near them.
Since the feature is expected to be available for the long haul, users will likely find all sorts of other things that are sharable via Nearby Share.
Anyone who wants to give Nearby Sharing a shot will need to have opted into the Play Services beta so they can test out new features (the test is only rolling out to some devices, so there’s a good chance that even if you have the Play Services beta enabled, you may not see it on your device).
Unfortunately, Google didn’t clarify when the feature would be available to all Android users.
I really appreciate you for taking the time to write me this feedback.
I received your feedback.
I am sorry!
