Fast Share: for Android Q

A system of file sharing such as music and videos have been planted in Android OS via Near-Field Connectivity (NFC) ever since its version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Even Android Beam still exist in Android OS 9.0 Pie although it’s not really popular amongst Android users. How it’s used was quite troublesome because when the system is working on sharing files, the devices have to be near each other to the point of sticking close.

Fast Share: Steps Out to Replace Android Beam

On the upcoming Android Q, Android Beam will cease to exist and instead Google will provide a new feature called Fast Share, a more practical and lenient way to share files. Since NFC is limited on its range, Fast Share will count more on WiFi and Bluetooth to be connected wireless, and using GPS to be able to find other devices around its area.

It could be said that Fast Share has similar ability with AirDrop, a feature for iOS users. Like Android Beam and AirDrop, Fast Share could make the users share files like music, videos, documents, URL, and text file. How to use it has been leaked by 9to5 Google. This new feature can be access from Share menu after users choose their certain files to be shared. In Share menu just choose Fast Share, users are able to rename their device and even fins others. 

And like how old Bluetooth works, the receiver can confirm the files from being sent by choosing either ‘Accept’ or ‘Decline’. So far the announcement of this feature’s availability only exist on the latest Pixel series such as Pixel 3XL that has Android Q running as its OS.
