    Default Beaming Photo From Nexus 5 to Nexus 7 With NFC

    I set up NFC on my Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (first gen). When I try to beam a photo from the phone to the tablet, everything seems to go correctly. The sound plays, the photo shrinks with the "Touch here to beam" message, and the success words display. Unfortunately, my tablet opens up to Google+ instead of Gallery and the photo is nowhere to be found. I read that some devices have trouble beaming photos....but two Nexus family devices? Anyone get this to work?

    Make sure you have Bluetooth on. You have to have it on for file sending over NFC.

    Yes, you need Bluetooth on. Usually you'll get a message to turn it on and that an app wants to use it. When I just tapped a picture from gallery in N5 to N7, it showed up as download. When I move a file Using File Expert, the file shows up in Received Files folder.

    Interesting, I guess devices handle this differently.

    No, you don't. While it will transmit via BT the Nexus will automatically turn it on and off if it was off already. I transfered photos with my wife with 2 Galaxy Nexus phones and never touched BT since neither of us used it for anything.

    OK, well I haven't used it in a while, but when I tried it it didn't work until I manually turned Bluetooth on.

    It does not work any better with Bluetooth on. The instructions don't mention turning Bluetooth on so I was skeptical, but I tried it anyway.
