Looking forward to speaking about Nearby at Google I/O. We'll be announcing a new feature that we're adding to Android! Check it out at https://goo.gl/FmTUhf #io16

Nearby is live!!
We're excited to see what folks build with it.
We're excited to officially launch Nearby: a new proximity API for iOS and Android. Devices--even older devices as far back as Gingerbread and the iPhone 4--can now find and talk to each other. We believe this will unlock new types of interactions and turn interactions that used to be cumbersome, into single-touch transactions.

It's the same technology we used to build Chromecast Guest Mode, but we're making it available to all developers.

The API is part of Google Play Services on Android and a CocoaPod on iOS. Developers will find familiar publish-subscribe functionality--that relies on copresence. The API is free, unauthenticated, and flexible--allowing developers to control the user experience of their proximity feature.

We hope you like it and we're excited to see how developers can innovate with it!
