Near Share in Windows 10 Let's You to Wirelessly Share Files

Microsoft has already released Windows 10 Creators Fall update and week's build comes with a new feature called Near Share and of course other improvements. It allows users to wirelessly share files to devices that are within a certain range or vicinity using the Bluetooth. You can call it Microsoft's version of Apple AirDroid, but sure does a pretty good job of sharing files at ease. Microsft Near Share feature is only available on Windows 10 Build 17035 so you can do well to upgrade before the free update window ends.
