It appears that Google is nearing the final stages of testing for the AirDrop-like file-sharing option. The source for this is not the official one, but we have heard consistent chatter on the subject for some time now, and now we have a proposed release time frame. Starting in August, all of the current Android users are on Android 6 and above, and can seamlessly receive support for the feature over the air.

The minimum OPERATING system requirement is in line with what Google has shared with you in relation to your current Nearby Parts of the beta test. The latter of which is still being carried out on certain eligible devices and are required to simply opt in for a beta build of Google Play Services. Since the Nearby Share is a part of that framework is that, in contrast to some of the other lower-level part of the Android OS itself, it is obvious that all of the existing Android 6 users and later, eventually, will only function as a simple Play-Store-update-package.
In other exciting news, Google seems to have plans to add support for the new quick-sharing feature to other mobile platforms, including Windows, ChromeOS, mac, and Linux. In fact, an early version of the feature has already been added to some Linux as well. As is often the case in progress on that front as well.

In the event that you are not at the level of the Neighbouring Parts, it is a simple, seamless file sharing solution, rather think in terms of what Apple users have been enjoying for years, and now with AirDrop. The permissions and visibility for the adjacent Sections and will be controlled by a settings menu, which is closely associated with your phone’s contact list. The most important point is that, as long as you have a certain person as a single point of contact and one of their devices, and it is close enough to the sending and receiving of files, the facility is a one-click affair. And don’t forget the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Direct connection, negotiations will be necessary. At the beginning of the investigation and the technique, it turns out that, just as is the AirDrop, this will depend on both the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi internet access included, behind the scenes, with the former establishing the connection, and the latter, in fact, it is the transfer of information, due to the higher bandwidth.
There may still be some nuances to discover with regards to the Nearby areas of endorsement and support. Some Android manufacturers have been around for a comparable private cloud solutions. Huawei and Honor, which is currently without an official Google-Play-Service support will be provided to the Area’s Share, at all. Then again, Huawei’s Share has been a “thing”, so perhaps this can be made compatible? We’ll just have to wait and see.
