Android Nearby Share for Windows PC now available worldwide

Nearby Share for Windows PCs allows Android users, whether desktops or laptops, to share files with their PC wirelessly and through Android’s native menu. As we found in our initial hands-on coverage, it’s generally very fast and reliable, even in this early beta.

However, at launch, Google limited this feature to a handful of countries, mostly in the United States. Since then, Google has quietly expanded support to other regions.

On its support page, Google says his Nearby Share for Windows PCs is now available in “most countries around the world.” This includes parts of Europe as well as many other countries around the world.

Many people have successfully installed Nearby Share before, but it is not officially supported or available for direct download in many countries. Nearby Share for PC is currently still in beta, and some regions have restricted app usage. These include Cuba, Iran, North Korea and Syria. No information about official release.

There are also no changes to system requirements yet, including lack of official support for ARM-based devices.
