Android 12 Adds ‘Nearby Share’ Feature Permanently


Wi-Fi Password sharing was never this easy. With the latest Android 12 feature, it has now become convenient for the user to share Wi-Fi with peers instantly. This new feature titled ‘Nearby Share’ has recently become available for download. Sadly, not all Android phones support this feature, but many popular ones come on the list, including Google’s Pixel and Samsung Galaxy’s phones.

When you need to share a Wi-Fi password with a bunch of people in a group, it can be tedious and slow. Speaking the password aloud, typing it yourself, or having to write it down are some of the options we traditionally follow, but thanks to Android 12’s new feature, that is no longer an issue.


Users can now share Wi-Fi passwords in the form of a QR code. To enable this feature, users need to follow these simple steps:

  • First open Settings, then go to Wi-Fi and select the desired network.
  • Now you will get the option to share the network via a QR code or through ‘Nearby Share’.
  • Upon choosing the second option, the phone will look for nearby devices, and the other user on their device will be notified asking them to connect to the shared Wi-Fi network.

In this way, users can quickly share passwords and connect to the network with less of a hassle and faster than ever!
