What is Nearby?

Nearby is a new feature in Android that allows you to interact with other devices without connecting over the internet. This makes it possible for people to exchange data, share content and even play games right next to each other! Nearby also lets you use your phone or tablet as a controller for apps on another device.

Google Nearby operates by emitting a type of inaudible sound that is undetectable to the human ear. However, if your phone picks up on this sound it will then be able to communicate with other devices nearby via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi signals so you can find friends or share files without having signal coverage from towers like AT&T Wireless would provide.

Nearby is a set of technologies that developers can incorporate into their apps. For example, Google Play Games uses Nearby to find others near you who you wish to play with—a feature any family member or roommate would love as it bypasses network and server requirements!

Do you want to play a game with someone nearby? Nearby is the perfect tool for that. If your friends are all too far away, use Google Play Games which uses Nearby technology and locate other gamers near you!
