How to Use NFC Technology

Near Field Communication is helping to change the wireless landscape, enabling tasks such as paying for goods, pairing with a speaker and exchanging contact info with a friend.

NFC uses radio communications to let you easily exchange information. Many new Verizon smartphones come with the technology, helping you to share photos and more between NFC-enabled devices with just a tap. It also allows you to interact with NFC tags, such as tapping a poster to download a song, and much more.

Pair with certain wireless accessories with just a tap
You can also easily connect your smartphone to some Bluetooth® accessories using NFC. The technology makes it simple to pair your device to the accessory by just tapping the two together—which eliminates searching for nearby devices and entering codes. Then you can quickly enjoy all that the accessory offers, such as streaming music wirelessly.

Verizon Wireless sells several Bluetooth and NFC-enabled wireless speakers. Features to look for include tap-to-pair capability for your smartphone, and using NFC to sync two speakers.  

Many of these speakers boast great sound no matter what you play, from tunes off your hottest playlist to a work-related conference call. Don’t limit your listening to music—hook your speaker up to a tablet or laptop to enjoy enhaned audio for a movie or TV show.
