Google has launched a recent feature for its Android operating system that the company says lets users discover things around them. Dubbed Nearby, the feature notifies you about stuff that could be useful to you based on your location/surroundings.

"The correct app at the correct moment lets you acquire more done," the search giant assumed in a blog post. "For example, at a store, you may want a barcode scanner to check prices and reviews for an item. Or when you're at a museum, an audio tour would enhance the experience as you create your way around the exhibits."

Not only this, some Google devices like Google Cast and Android Wear smartwatches will also let you set them up simply by tapping a notification when you're near them.

To utilize the Nearby feature, all you have to do is to turn on Bluetooth and Location on your device. Compatible with Android 4.4 (KitKat) and above, the feature has started rolling out as part of the upcoming Google Play Services release.
