You can beam a web page, a video, or other content from your screen to another device by bringing the devices together (typically back to back).
Before you begin: Make sure both devices are unlocked, support Near Field Communication (NFC), and have both NFC and Android Beam turned on.
Follow these steps:
- Open a screen that contains something you'd like to share, such as a Browser page, YouTube video, or place page in Maps.
- Move the back of your phone toward the back of the other device.
When the devices connect, you hear a sound, the image on your screen reduces in size, and you see the message Touch to beam.
- Touch your screen anywhere.
Your friend's device displays the transferred content. Or, if the necessary app isn't installed, Google Play opens to a screen where your friend can download the app.
To turn on NFC, touch the Settings icon > Wireless & networks > More > NFC.
To turn on Android Beam, touch the Settings icon > Wireless & networks > More > Android Beam.
