Beam Content

Make sure that both devices are unlocked and have NFC turned on. If the other device has an Android Beam™ option, make sure it is also turned on.

  1. While viewing the content that you want to share, hold your phone and the other phone back to back.
  • Make sure that the NFC area (shaded part) of your phone and the other phone’s NFC area are close to one another. Experiment by slightly moving the phones until a connection is made.

  1. When your phone vibrates, tap the screen to send the content to the other device.

The shared content appears on the other screen. For some items that you’ve shared (such as contact information), additional instructions on how to save the item will appear on the receiving device.
