Nearby Share, Google’s answer to Apple’s AirDrop, makes it possible to share files and applications with a person near to us without the need for cables.
Until now, Nearby Share allows you to share files or applications with just one person. It seems that Google will change this soon because they are preparing a new update that will allow file sharing with multiple people at the same time using Nearby Share on your Android phone.
As per a report by 9to5Google, in an upcoming update, Nearby Share will expand the options available when sharing files with other users. Not only will it be possible to share files with a single person, but new options will be introduced, such as Contacts or Everyone. This way, you will be able to choose with whom to share files using this method.
This function will not share those files or information with all the selected devices at the same time but will be sent one by one, so it could be a somewhat slow process if there are many devices. Although at the moment, it is unknown when this change will come to Nearby Share.
