“In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to use Nearby Sharing to effortlessly transfer files to your own devices,” Scott Blanksteen, Senior Director, Product Management, Android, said in a statement.
“Simply select Android devices connected to your Google account from the sharing menu to quickly share files between them. And once you sign up, transfers between devices you own are automatically accepted, even if your screen is off,” Blanksteen added.
The company said it recently introduced a new look and updated Google Workspace apps for larger screens and now continues to optimize users’ favorite Google apps on tablets for easier multitasking, starting by redesigned widgets for Google Drive and Keep.
“With an updated Google Drive widget, three home screen buttons now provide direct access to your Google Docs, Google Slides, and Google Sheets files,” the company said.
“And in Google Keep, a larger widget and font size make it easier to access note-taking, to-do lists, and reminders,” he added.
The company has added many new Emoji Kitchen mashups, available as stickers through Gboard.
To bring people together, the company said it’s also adding new shared experiences in Google Meet.
“With live sharing features, you can instantly co-watch YouTube videos and play classic games with up to 100 friends and family at once,” the company said.
“So even if you’re far apart, you can keep traditions like a movie and game night going. This feature is rolling out to Android phones and tablets,” he added.
