  1. Open the Files by Google app.
  2. Long-press the folder that you want to share.
  3. Tap the Share icon (the three dots in a circle).
  4. Select Nearby Share.
  5. Your device will scan for nearby devices that have Nearby Share enabled.
  6. Select the device that you want to share the folder with.
  7. The recipient will receive a notification that you have sent them a folder. They can tap the notification to accept the share.

The folder will then be transferred to the recipient’s device. The transfer process may take a few minutes, depending on the size of the folder.
