Jamboard NFC sensor may not work when claiming ownership with your smartphone


After you install the Jamboard app on your phone, you can add yourself as an owner to a jam using the Jamboard NFC reader. In some cases, when trying to take ownership of a jam, the Jamboard NFC reader may become unresponsive.


  • Make sure you have installed the Jamboard app and have enabled the NFC chip on your phone.
  • Hold your phone flat against the NFC reader on the Jamboard left frame. Look for the letters NFC on the left side near the bottom of the frame.
  • You may need to lift your phone and press it against the NFC reader more than once.
  • Adjust the placement of your phone against the NFC reader. Different phone models have the NFC chip installed in different locations.
  • If the NFC feature does not work, use another method to add people to a jam.
