Google makes a full o.s and keeps it running,while the other OEM are making a few lousy features. Really? If the OEMs can't even do a few features,why they are selling phones anymore? They want everything done by Google?

What is the difference between QR and some other sort of share? It must be transmitted somehow, perhaps via NFC? MIUI had QR share since forever, so the question here is - who cares?

RC255, 20 Jan 2021In a couple of years Apple will add it too. Huh? Apple had this feature for years. It is very easy to share wifi password between Apple devices.

The only problem with this is that the Android 10 password share isn't known by average users. This is a great addition, but it needs to be accessible in more simple steps and actually let people about it. I've visited a number of friends whom I had to show this as they're not tech savvy and never knew this existed - even though it's not hard to find.

useless cause you still have to ask your friend to share the password (assuming he has a phone running android 12).
