Just a month after it was discovered that Google’s AirDrop-alternative, Nearby Sharing, would be coming to Chrome OS, Windows and Mac, there’s news that it now already works on Chrome OS Canary developer builds.

Nearby Sharing has indeed come a long way and will make life a lot easier when compared to the current alternative that needs you to manually pair devices via Bluetooth to share files. While that’s good news for Android smartphones, it’s even better news for those who want to share files between Windows and Mac devices as well as Google’s Chrome OS.
