In this way, the productivity options offered by development will be increased, since if a work communication is being carried out in which a text file needs to be shared, for example, it will now be possible with the development of Google that is It uses both desktop computers and operating systems like Android. The point is that what is sent is a link that the other person can use and start the download.
Also, so that you more or less know what you are going to receive now that Hangouts will allow file sharing, it shows a preview in a lateral space specifically enabled for it. This is very useful, since sometimes it is possible that with the image you see it is not necessary to start the corresponding download, and I also ensure that what is shared is exactly what you want to use.
Using the functionality that Hangouts will allow you to share files is very simple: once you are in a video call, you just have to click on the Chat icon (it has a bubble with horizontal lines) and then you have to search another who has the Drive logo, the usual triangle but with the added “+” symbol. Now, you simply have to select the file you want to share or paste it directly on the chat screen. The recipient user can now manipulate what is received to save or open it.
The update necessary for the new functionality to be a reality has not yet been deployed (and the corresponding APK has not been released), but according to Google itself in the link that we leave at the end of this article, the deployment will begin in a matter of hours. Without a doubt, the power and integration of the developments of the Mountain View company is increasing.
Other applications for the optional Google system can be found in this section of Android Help in which there is a very numerous list and that therefore surely there is some development that is interesting.
