Have you ever wished that you could send an mp3 to someone that you were talking to without having to hook up your devices to one another? The AirPlay to AppleTV support was a similar feature that was recently added to the Android media player. Now, you will be able to send your mp3 from one phone to another without having to connect them, straight through NFC technology. The video that was released also offers a few details that will give you a better idea of how the technology will work. The update first went live in the Android Market throughout the night. You will be able to send the mp3 to someone that is on a unlocked Samsung Nexus S Google, Galaxy S II and hopefully soon other devices.
In order to use the software you will have to have two different Android phones that also have the NFC technology. The file sharing features work over the WiFi or Bluetooth connection strings, and will continually be updated by DoubleTwist.
This is exciting because it is the first of many ways that we will see this technology to be used in the future. The ability to wirelessly send files from one device to another will be hugely popular in the near future. As of right now, only a few devices actually have the NFC technology to make it possible, but you can bet that as more devices are added to lineups with this technology that there will be more and more uses for wirelessly sending files back and fourth.
Several companies have announced new phones that have NFC technology to be released in the near future, so it appears that the trend will continue to grow moving forward as well. Sharing music is just the very beginning, but you can bet that all sorts of files will be shared moving forward into the future.
