Google goes filesharing service for Android and iOS release ‘




Google is probably a new filesharing service under the name Copresence. Allows mobile users to exchange data that together near his data and content. It is striking that it would also work between Android and iOS.

Copresence was discovered by Android Police seeking information on the latest version of the installation file for Google Play Services got into hands. The service which it identified and several images were found. Copresence is described as a service to data and content exchange between users that are close together. A connection to another user is set up by looking at location data and create a bluetooth connection. Data it may also be exchanged via wifi.

One of the most striking things is that data can be exchanged with iOS devices. Normally operate such services only in mobile operating systems. So Google has Android Beam in a file sharing service. This only works with Android devices that have NFC. It is unclear whether it is also working on support for other mobile operating systems such as Windows Phone or BlackBerry 10.
