Users of Chrome on iOS devices are also in for a treat, as Chrome will receive support for password sharing with a selection of iOS apps.
Since previous year, Google has been developing "Nearby Share" as its own native solution for file sharing, much like AirDrop from Apple. If you're not among the lucky few, however, the feature will become officially available with Android 11 in September. It is worth noting the tool only works with other Google-connected products. The first is to do with keeping your payment card details more secure when accessing them from within Chrome, the second is focused on making password entry on Android phones as convenient as possible without impacting security.
The upcoming feature has been announced by Google, along with details about how it will work on Android.
Here, search for "nearby", and a search will popup called Nearby Sharing.
This means if you have a Mac, Linux, or Windows PC running Chrome or a Chromebook, the feature is headed your way. And also allow transferring files between PC.
Information How to test on Windows?
Download and install the Google Chrome Dev version on your Windows PC.
Despite the wider testing and cross-platform integration, the biggest question remains - When exactly does Google plan to launch Nearby Share publicly?
If you've ever bought something through the browser on your Android phone, you know that Chrome always asks you to enter the CVC code from your credit card to ensure that it's really you - even if you have the credit card number stored on your phone.
Thanks to crash reports from users, Google is already aware of the problem so we can expect a fix soon.
