How To Send Files Via NFC On Android

NFC is Near Field Communication which is a medium for transferring data within a very short range. While sending files via NFC the two smartphones are held back to back. With NFC you can send audio, video and image files to other NFC compatible phones. Also you can beam content on other android phones like beam Youtube videos and web pages. Enable NFC on your phone and place the two phones back to back to communicate. In this tutorial I am going to show how you can send audio, video and image files via NFC to other android or windows smartphones. I am using Sony Xperia smartphone which has a built in app ‘Drag & Share’ which allows us to send files via NFC. If you are using any other NFC compatible android phone then the procedure will be slightly different. The tutorial can be used with Sony Xperia Z, Xperia Z2, Xperia M2, Xperia T2, Xperia M and others.

How To Send Files Via NFC On Android

  • Open Drag & Share app on your xperia smartphone.
  • Tap on the top left to access the drop down box and choose what type of file you want to send. Whether it is image, audio or video.
  • After selecting the file type slide towards left on the smartphone icon to access NFC.
  • Now drag any image and drop it on NFC icon. If it is not enabled then you will be prompted to enable it.
  • NFC should be enabled on the other compatible device.

  • Now bring the device back to back. The image will be received on other phone.
  • Similarly you can repeat the procedure for audio and video files.
Note: Only one file can be sent at a time. If you have any questions then feel free to ask.
