Hi everybody,

I recently bought a Surface Go 2 for Business. The spec in the webshop says, it has a NFC sensor built in, but I can not get it to read any tags. All the apps I tried do not even detect the NFC reader, also does official Microsoft Proximity API sample  does not. How to use the NFC sensor on this device or even find out, if the device I got shipped has the reader and if it is working at all?

 

Regards,

Stephan
