Using the Nearby Share app on Windows is easy. All it needs is a few-steps setup. Download and install the Nearby Share Beta App for Windows. Sign in with an account (preferably), looks for the available Android device and you can start sending and receiving the files.
The app works on your computer when you launch it or also in the background. You can send photos, videos, or documents to your Android by simply dragging and dropping them.
