Google has expanded the availability of its Nearby Share for Windows PCs to almost all countries worldwide. The feature, which enables Android users to transfer files wirelessly and through the operating system’s native menus, has proved to be very fast and reliable. Initially, the service was restricted to a few countries, primarily the United States, but it is now available in most countries globally, including parts of Europe. However, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Syria are still not supported due to ongoing restrictions.
Nearby Share for Windows PCs is still in beta mode, and the system requirements remain unchanged, with no official support yet for ARM-based devices. The app is currently under development, and while users in many countries have already installed the feature with success, it was not officially supported or directly available for download in many countries until recently.
Google’s Nearby Share for Windows PCs offers a convenient and efficient way to share files between Android devices and PCs, enabling users to avoid using cables and transferring files via third-party applications. The company plans to continue expanding the feature’s availability, and it is likely that it will be made available in unsupported countries in the future.
The expansion of Nearby Share for Windows PCs is a strategic move by Google to improve cross-platform functionality, which is essential to its ecosystem. As such, the company is continuously working to enhance its services and offer a better user experience, especially with the increasing reliance on remote work and online communication due to the ongoing pandemic. By expanding the availability of Nearby Share for Windows PCs, Google aims to further streamline file sharing between devices and improve productivity for its users.
