In Windows 8, support for NFC (Near Field Communication) was introduced with the ability to pair with Bluetooth devices. In Windows 8.1, users are able to easily connect printers using NFC.
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a set of short-range wireless radio technologies that typically triggers communication when two devices are brought within close proximity distance of four centimeters or less. NFC operates at 13.56MHz frequency and supports data transfer rates between 106Kbps to 424Kbps.
Device users will be able to connect their devices to printers using either UNC (Universal Naming Convention) or WSD (Web Services on Devices).
NOTE:? NFC is meant more for devices like phones and tablets, not for the general PC use.
