Android 12 brings easier way to share Wi-Fi password

 Android 12 has rolled out a new feature that  will help a user to share a Wi-Fi password. The name of this feature is 'Nearby Share'.  The feature has gone live in the Android 12 developer beta, which has recently become available to download.

In order to share a Wi-Fi pasword, first of all open Settings, you need to go to Wi-Fi, select the network one wants, and tap 'Share'. One will get the option to share the network via a QR code or through Nearby Share. If a user chooses the latter, the phone will look for nearby devices, and the person on the other device will get a notification, asking them to accept the share.This feature allows an individual to send and receive files between Android devices and Chromebooks. However, not all Android phones support Nearby Share, but many popular ones do.

The password will not be displayed for security reasons, but should the receiver accept the share, they will then be able to connect to the Wi-Fi network. Mashable reported that Android has offered users the ability to share Wi-Fi networks via a QR code since version 10. for it to work, the person on the other end needs to have Nearby Share enabled.
