How can I use my NFC-enabled Android device with the Brother NFC-enabled machine?

Near-Field Communication (NFC) allows for simple transactions, data exchange and wireless connections between two devices that are close to each other.


If your Android device is NFC-enabled, you can print data (photos, PDF files, text files, web pages and email messages) from the device or scan photos and documents to the device by touching it to the NFC symbol on the machine's control panel.

NOTE: Illustrations shown below are from a representative product and may differ from your Brother machine.




Then you can directly print from or scan to your NFC-enabled Android device.

To use this function,

  • You must install Brother iPrint&Scan to your NFC-enabled Android device.
  • Your NFC-enabled Android device must be running Android™ OS version 4.4 or later.
    Make sure your Brother machine's NFC function is turned on. You can confirm your machine's NFC setting in the Network menu on the control panel of your machine.

The Android device must have NFC capability and run Android OS version 4.4 and later. Check your Android device's manufacturer specifications to learn more.
