Fast Pair is Google’s set of specs that makes it easy to connect Bluetooth audio accessories to Android devices.

The Fast Pair connection will now be synced and shared with other Android devices using the user’s Google Account.

Google will add Fast Pair support to Chromebooks in 2019.

Google introduced Fast Pair last year that allows audio devices like headphones and speakers to pair with Android phones by simply turning the accessory on and tapping on a pop-up.

All of this work is done using a Bluetooth low energy broadcast and a bit of communication with a Google server.

Announced on the Android Developers Blog, Google is now adding a feature to the spec that allows the Fast Pair connection to be Shared.
