Is my phone NFC compatible?

Want to use Yoto's tapping feature to play Yoto Cards on your phone? Here's everything you need to know!

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a technology found in many smartphones which lets you exchange data between two devices through touch. With the Yoto app, this lets you play your Yoto cards by simply tapping your chosen card on the back of your phone.

It's a bit like magic, really, but without all the secrecy and rabbits! Wondering if you'll be able to pull it out of the hat? Here's a list of all the phones which have NFC technology enabled.

Please note: this list is for guidance only. If in doubt, or you have specific questions or concerns about using NFC technology with your phone model, please contact your phone manufacturer directly
