Google recently rebranded Nearby Share to Quick Share. The change brought along a new icon and a couple of visual changes. This detailed guide will help you modify your Quick Share settings to get the most out of it.

That connection allows two phones to send anything from a single photo to a folder of documents within a matter of seconds. Even sending videos through a UWB connection takes only a few moments.

That network is a game changer, allowing users to tap into an existing network of millions of Android devices that can pinpoint their own devices. Ultra Wideband radio signals are a huge part of that infrastructure.
