Google’s proximity sharing service, such as Airtrop, now allows users to share applications without an Internet connection.
We mentioned in December the arrival of a feature on Android to send and receive apps from the Play Store using Google’s proximity sharing service. It is done now.
Integrated in the Play Store
You can not only exchange files, photos and videos, but also share apps directly from the Play Store without an internet connection. In fact, a new “Share” tab is now available in the “My Games and Apps” section of the Play Store, which allows you to send and receive apps.
Sharing without internet connection
The main advantage of this innovation is that it can be done without an internet connection. You can send previously installed applications to the device without having to download the APK file manually.
To exchange apps, both users need to go to the Play Store’s dedicated page and enable geolocation, WiFi and Bluetooth access. Once these conditions are met, the transfer is done with a single click.
