Windows 10 AirDrop Version Lets You Quickly Share Files Between PCs

Microsoft is planning to roll out its own Apple’s AirDrop feature in Windows 10 very soon. As the Redmond-based firm has started testing its “Near Share” feature of Windows 10 in the latest Insider build 17037 already. Otherwise, it is designed specifically to make file sharing pretty easier. Unlike AirDrop, Near Share will let Windows 10 PCs share documents or transfer photos to computers nearby through Bluetooth sync. Here are the details you may want to learn.

About Near Share Feature

A new Near Share option will be available in the Notification Center, and the same feature can be accessed via the main share function in Windows 10. Files will be shared wirelessly, and the receiver or the recipients will get a notification when if someone is trying to send a file or doc. Unfortunately, we haven’t tested it already and we can’t say how it works fully. But it sounds perfect for sending space sloths during company meetings.

This new Microsoft’s addition comes just a day after Google released its own AirDrop-like app for Android download as Files Go.

Along with the new Near Share feature, Microsoft is also adding a mute tab to the Edge browser. Like Chrome, mute a tab will silence irritating auto-playing videos or ads in a browsing session. With that said, the giant is also bringing Surface hardware into its Microsoft Store app, allowing Windows 10 users to purchase devices and accessories.
