Microsoft Releases its Version of Apple’s AirDrop

And it is called Near Share

Near Share

Near Share, which is just like the Apple’s AirDrop file sharing feature for mac was released with the  Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17035 for PC. Near Share allows you to wirelessly share files and URLs to nearby PCs.

1. To use Near Share, Both PC must have Bluetooth support, and both devices be running Windows 10 and have RS4 Build 17035+ build installed.

Ensure that Near Share is turned on for your PC – there’s a new quick action in the Action Center that will need to be set to ON. If the quick action isn’t immediately visible and your PC has Bluetooth, check if it’s enabled under Settings > Notifications & Actions > “Add or remove quick actions”.

2. Look for the Share icon in any of your favorite apps – e.g. Photos, Microsoft Edge, and or even File Explorer (right-click a file and choose Share).

3. Click on Share! You will now see a list of devices at the top – select the one you want to share to, any nearby PCs in Bluetooth range with the feature enabled should show up.

4. Once the recipient accepts (they will get a notification via Action Center to accept or decline), watch your file magically transfer wirelessly!
