Nearby Share is a built-in feature of Android, which lets you share photos, videos, contacts, links, etc., wirelessly with other Android phones. Now you can share apps too. Google added a new Share menu in the My Apps & Games section of the Play Store. This option lets you transfer apps to other nearby phones without mobile data.

Transferring apps via Play Store’s new Nearby Share option is amazingly fast. But you cannot share all apps from your phone, for example, paid apps. The new feature will be more beneficial if you want to transfer big apps if the internet connection is quirky at your end.

Send apps without internet on Android

Note that both sender and receiver phones should have the new Share menu to send and receive apps without an internet connection. If the option isn’t available, you may need to wait for a little to get the feature.
