Chrome OS might receive a new feature called Self Share. We all know Nearby Share which is an Android feature that allows you to quickly share files between devices just like Apple’s AirDrop. Lately, Google made Nearby Share available for Chromebooks, thus enabling users to transfer files between a wide range of devices such as phones, laptops, and tablets.
Today, we’re learning about what appears to be the next step forward in this field called Self Share, which may be beneficial for anybody who has a lot of gadgets at home.
Chrome OS devices will be able to transfer files using Self Share
This was discovered by ChromeStory and according to their report, the tool is still in development. When Google releases Self Share, you’ll notice a new “Send to Your Devices” option in the Nearby Share menu which will let you send files between your phones, laptops, and tablets. Although the idea of being able to share files from your computer to your phone isn’t particularly new, we’re always looking for methods to make common activities quicker.
Be wary of a new test flag becoming available in a Canary release if you want to give it a go. It will likely be months before you can use it normally, if at all. Because it’s in testing, there will be a long wait before we’ll see it in the stable version.
