Do you want to share the app on your Android device? In today’s article, we will describe to you how to share apps on Android.

Nowadays, apps and games on smartphones are considered a big part of people’s everyday lives, hence sharing the apps you use during the day with other friends might be something normal. It is straightforward to share apps with other users on Android. You might say the name most of the time, and your friend has to search it in the PlayStore. There are easier ways to share a game or app with other Android users, which we will introduce in the following.

Share the app with Nearby Share

It is among the best Android features similar to AirDrop available on the iPad, iPhone, and Mac OS. There is no need to have a network to share your apps or games. You should be close to your friend to be able to send him your favorite apps. The Google Play Store provides you with the Nearby Share feature to send apps and games to other users. It is convenient and enables you to send files directly through the App Store.

To this end, run the Play Store app on your Android phone or tablet. Then, you need to tap the hamburger icon on the top left for opening the drop-down menu.
