According to the author of the post, Cross Device Services (multi-device services) will be available in Google Play Services through an update that will arrive at a date yet to be determined, but is expected to land next month. Likewise, this tool is only included in Chromebooks and mobile computers, but tablets and other devices are expected to integrate it sooner rather than later.

With all this, Google wants to make it much easier to access its entire domain and, to make it a reality, it is advisable to use these devices at the same time, with the main objective of sharing any application on the platforms, just like Apple does with its iPhones. , iPad and Mac. However, it should be emphasized again that this will only be possible with other devices that have logged in with the same Google profile.

How is it done?

It all starts with creating a group of devices that use the same Google account. You can press the button Add this device to add the one that is being used at that precise moment or select Invite your other devices to send a notification and associate them.

Immediately afterwards, a series of functions will be activated:

  • Call Cast: Also called Call switching, we can answer calls from other devices or transfer a call from one to another, for example, in the event that we answer with our smartphone and want to continue talking from a tablet.
  • WiFi Sharing: Anyone who owns an Android phone or tablet will be able to share Wi-Fi automatically without having to enter the password.
  • Hotspot Sharing: is similar to the previous one and allows users to connect to the Internet between several devices, sharing the network access point.
