Google is working to expand Fast Pair. A technology that helps Android users set up their new handsets.
Fast Pair currently works well for pairing phones with headphones and smartwatches, but 9to5Google says it will soon launch when you upgrade your handset.
After examining the Fast Pair APK, the site found evidence that the feature may soon be activated on existing devices if it finds an Android handset that has not been activated.
These Pixel 7 SIM deals are cheaper than buying the phone outright.
Indulge yourself in the latest generation of the Google Pixel series with this fantastic deal from £23 per month with no upfront costs.
- Mobile Phone Direct
- No Upfront Fees
- Just £23 a month
From this point on, users can be guided through the steps to move their data and settings to their new Android phone. Current users start the transfer process by scanning a QR code with their new Android phone or downloading an app like Samsung Smart Switch. This simplifies the process a bit.
The APK also provided proof that Google could release the feature on time for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, which is set to be announced a week from now at the Samsung Unpacked event.
A few lines of code within the APK are:
Setting up the Galaxy S23 Ultra
Scan the QR code displayed on your new device to get started.
Quick pairing is an important tool for Android users when syncing a device like a Pixel phone with a Pixel Watch or Pixel Buds. The technology will be extended to accessories such as tracker tags, stylus pens and built-in support for Matter smart home devices. But there’s plenty of scope to include the smartphone experience as well.
Google describes this feature as:GFPS) Bluetooth low energy utilization (BLE) scans for nearby Bluetooth devices without consuming significant cell phone battery, enabling “magical” scenarios based on device proximity.”
