To enable this feature, there are two processes. The first one is through the notification panel while the other one is by going to settings and using the search bar to find “Nearby Share” before turning it on. Once you’ve clicked it, a dialog box will appear on the screen in which Nearby Share will ask you to turn on Bluetooth and visibility for sharing. From there, you should choose hidden, contacts, or everyone. You must click on your preference and it’ll be turned on for sharing.
