Assess ? Worth exploring with the goal of understanding how it will affect your enterprise.

As smart devices continue to embed themselves in our lives, we are starting to see new use cases emerge that span across multiple devices. The classic example is a text we start reading on a phone but prefer to finish on a tablet. Other examples include plotting a cycling route on a laptop and then transferring the data to a bike computer for easier navigation or using a mobile phone as a webcam. Such use cases require very specific kinds of features, like the discovery of nearby devices, secure communication and multi-device sessions. Apple started introducing such features a while ago to its own SDKs, and now Google has released the first preview of its Cross device SDK. Although the preview has several limitations — for example, only phones and tablets are supported and only two devices at a time — the technology is exciting and can be utilized as it is rolled out over time.
