Web Share API Level 2

Web Share API Level 2 allows sharing of files from the web to an app of the user's choosing. The API enables web developers to build share buttons that display the same system share dialog boxes used by native applications. Level 1 enabled system share dialogs; however only text and urls could previously be shared.
