The purpose of Android Quick pairing The advantage is to make setting up new devices faster and easier. For now, it supports devices like headphones and smartwatches, and will eventually bring support for trackpads and a stylus. A recent APK teardown suggests that Google may add a new device to that list soon — Android phones.
Lines of code found during APK disassembly indicate that Google is planning to add support for Android phones, based on a report from 9To5Google. Once you add the ability to Fast Pair, it will basically take the pain out of setting up a new phone.
Something to keep in mind is that unpacking an APK is the unpacking of files within a version of an app. In this case, it is the latest version of the Google Play Store. Although the lines of code within the files may contain data about future features, the interpretation of that data may not be perfect and there is no guarantee that it will make it into the hands of the public.
to me 9To5GoogleMy findings, the feature may allow your device to detect a nearby Android phone that hasn’t been set up yet. Similar to the way it works with setting up a device using a QR code, Fast Pair will help you install the app you need to transfer your information to the new phone.
The outlet says it has seen evidence that Google plans to offer support during Samsung’s tenure Galaxy S23 launch. This would be the perfect timing for those looking to upgrade from their phone to the S23.
