Part 3: How to transfer photos from Android to Android using Android Beam

Many latest Android phones – and even the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets – have integrated NFC hardware under their panel and support Android Beam on them. Android Beam is a software that allows you to send content between devices just by pressing them back-to-back.Android Beam is very ideal for sharing content – web pages, maps, videos, photos, and more – with other people’s Android phones and tablets.

Here are the on how to transfer photos from Android to Android using Android Beam.

Check for NFC Support

Before you try to transfer photos between two Android devices using Android Beam, you will need to ensure that both your Android devices support NFC. Some Android smartphones support NFC, however, there are some who don’t come with NFC support, so it is necessary to check before you launch this process.

To check for NFC support, open your device’s Settings screen and tap on “More…” that will be located under Wireless & networks.

Ensure that both NFC and Android Beam are enabled on both of your devices. If either feature has been disabled, enable it.

If you don’t see the NFC option, then it means that your device probably doesn’t include NFC hardware. It’s also highly possible that your device is using an older version of Android. Android Beam was introduced for Android 4.0 and higher devices.

Open the Content that You Want to Share

Once your device confirms that you have NFC support and you can use Android Beam, you need to navigate to the content that you want to share. For example, here’s how you would share various types of content using this toolkit:

• Web Page: Open it in Chrome (it is always advisable to use chrome for this purpose).

• YouTube Video: Open it in the default YouTube app 9pre-download the app on both devices).

• Map Directions or a Location: Open the Google Maps app and pull up the directions or the location that you want to share.

• Contact Information: Open the contact card in the People app on the sender device.

• An App: Open its download page on Google Play Store.

• Photos: Open a photo in the gallery. You can also send multiple photos by opening the default gallery app, you just have to long-press a photo’s thumbnail, and then tap all the other photos you want to send to select them. With the photos selected, you can finally start the beaming process.

Beam the Content

Now, before you can send your content between two devices with Android Beam, they must both be powered on and completely unlocked. If either device screen is off, or if either device is at its lock screen (or is password encrypted), Android Beam won’t work, and you can’t transfer music.

With both devices on and unlocked, press them back-to-back to transfer your music from one Android to Another.
