In other to use it, on your Chrome Dev or Canary channel, open chrome://flags page, and choose the Nearby sharing option that is on the list. Then enable it and restart the browser. Finally, head to chrome://nearby which shows all the supported devices that can you share files with.

This new feature works on all Windows PC version with Bluetooth support. Also, there are little limitations here, you need to have a compatible Pixel phone or a Chromebook. So for the devices to detect the PC, it needs to be unlocked and very close to each other.

So using this feature, Android users can share anything such as photos, videos, etc from their phone to pc or otherwise. The Nearby Share feature test for the service via Google Play Services Public Beta Program is no one. It will be available for Mac and Linux later as Google says they are making plans for that.
