Default NFC starts play store..

Hi all.

I am trying to transfer a photo from my wife's galaxy note 3 but everytime the phones connect, my XZU starts play store.

Any thoughts?

Interesting because on stock ROM you can't change anything. Curious are you running a custom ROM or is it stock? I just tried with my 6806 and my Note 3 and had no issues beaming to the Ultra.

Just to check, when you have NFC on, Do you also have Android Beam on as well?

You can't use NFC to transfer files. Its used to activate hardware or features. Its opening the playstore because it doesn't know what you want.

You'll need to tell it to activate android beam when tapping NFC
Don't ask me how to do that, as I've ever used beam.

Perhaps 'sony connect' from the playstore??

or

'NFC easy connect' both are by Sony Corp.

Yeah I downloaded NFC connect, this utility seems to be just for connecting to speakers etc, even with this software on the phone it does the same thing.

Weird.

Oh and I am on the stock ROM. Just upgraded to 4.3 so will see if that makes a difference.

Go to manage apps and clear the defaults for the play store

It's something to do with extra software on Samsung galaxy phones...

I had the same issue receiving images from my wife's S4 but she recieves them fine from other samsungs...

Easier to just install WhatsApp an send them that way haha
