Recently, Google has been actively working on some type of cross-platform communication and information service called copresence. But what is it?

In this week’s podcast, we share what we know about it and try to divine what it might be. It will work with Chrome, Chrome OS and Android; possibly with iOS as well. It may also be related to a location-based service [company]Google[/company] calls “nearby” and possibly allow for direct file sharing between devices in a peer-to-peer way. Tune in to hear more on that topic as well as other Chrome and Chromecast news.
