Google's Nearby Share for Windows is now out of beta

Vlad, 20 July 2023

Google's interpretation of Apple's AirDrop, Nearby Share, is now officially out of beta for Windows. Following some testing, in which more than 1.7 million people participated, the company decided to release a stable version, and you can download it here.

Nearby Share is a very apt name - it basically describes exactly what the entire point of it is. You can use it to quickly (and easily) share stuff between Android phones, regardless of maker. And starting today, you can use it to share files between Windows PCs and Android devices.

Since the launch of the beta, Google says it saw over 50 million files transferred between PCs and Android devices.

With the stable version comes an estimation of how long transfers will take to complete, as well as an image preview function within device notifications. This is meant to ensure that you can confirm that the correct file is being shared.

Just use open source variant, like Magic Wormhole or FTP

Personally I use send anywhere it's on every platform and you don't need Wi-Fi I can do direct share and there's no limits to files can be videos torrents or anything else and it's completely free. Better than Google's nearby...
