With near field communication technology, you can quickly share digital information – videos, music, links, photos and other saved files – by simply touching two devices together.


It’s called Android Beam.


Here’s how to get started:


  1. Turn on Android Beam by going to Settings > More > Android Beam and then hitting the switch.
  2. Navigate to whatever resource you want to share (a contact, a picture, a web page, an app).
  3. Place your phone back to back with another Beam-enabled Android device.
  4. You’ll hear a chime and you’ll see your screen shrink.
  5. Tap on the screen to share.
  6. Once the beam is initiated you can move the phones apart.
