Check out this hands-on look at the upcoming 'Nearby Sharing' feature in Android. The feature is Google's answer to Apple's AirDrop.

XDA Developers has posted a video to YouTube demonstrating the transfer of a file between the Google Pixel 2 XL and a Google Pixel 4, both running Android 10. The site notes that while there are still a few rough edges to be smoothed out, the feature looks about ready for release.

Android just might go from having no first-party AirDrop competitor to at least three AirDrop competitors in the next month. Google’s Nearby Sharing might turn out to be superior because of its universality across Android devices, as opposed to Samsung and OPPO-Vivo-Xiaomi’s solution, but the others could also give an edge to their services with tighter and more prominent integrations across the UX and their own apps. We’ll find out soon enough.
