Google Nearby API allows to discover other devices, connect, and interact with messages. As Google suggests, this API could be useful for collaboration, using a whiteboard, local multiplayer gaming, using a network, and multi-screen gaming, using a device such as Android TV. What the API can do for developers is to communicate with nearby devices in real time. This API is associated to Nearby Connections. Soon, Google will release Nearby Messages, as Google Play Services 7.8 is available. More info at https://developers.google.com/nearby/
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
