Jul 14, 2014
AirDroid’s going to have a major update with something new to expect! Be our beta testers to find out what features are added to AirDroid!

What to expect in AirDroid v3.0.4.2 Beta?

We added “Nearby” and “Friend” features in the beta version.

What’s “Nearby”?

“Nearby” is a new feature added in File Transfer. It’s quite powerful, which by scanning, it will discover nearby devices that use AirDroid on the same network.

How’s that useful?

Suppose you are using AirDroid in an office, transferring files to your colleagues will be super fast and easy! Or, you are using AirDroid in a study seminar, you want to share something to your classmates. You are at home with some friends or family, you can use AirDroid “Nearby” to send them photos!

What’s more, “Nearby” feature is available on Windows/Mac client and android device. This means you can send files to anyone in the neighborhood from you computer, or from your mobile!

What’s “Friends”?

“Friends” is an extended feature for “Nearby”. If you have sent files to a “Nearby” user, you may want to add he/she as a friend, so that you can send files even when he/she is not around you.

You can add a friend via email invitation or directly from a nearby device.
