Among the sea of differences between iOS and Android is the former’s AirDrop. It’s quite a straightforward method of sending files from one iOS device to another. It looks like Google is working on something similar for Android and Chromebooks, and is simply called Fast Share.
9to5Google managed to enable Fast Share on Android Q with its Google Pixel 3 XL. And from the screenshots shared, they work in a pretty similar way as well – enabling it makes your device visible to others, that can then send files, or even text to you.
The underlying tech that makes Fast Share possible is actually a combination of Bluetooth and WiFi, like iOS’ AirDrop. You can also set a list of devices under “Preferred Visibility” which allows them to send files to you even when you have Fast Share turned off.
9to5Google also states that this is a Google Play Services feature, so it likely won’t be an Android Q exclusive. That said, there is no word as to when the feature will officially launch.
