    When I had my S3 me and my buddy would tranfer music to each other using Sbeam all the time. Now that I have the S4 it won't work. Did they remove the feature?

    Hey guys so this is my first forum post, ever, especially on here so I would really appreciate the help and input.

    So I have had my Galaxy S4 for about three weeks now and have had a bunch of trouble s-beaming music to other Samsung Galaxy devices. My roommate recently bought an S4 too and we tried S-beaming music and to no luck we weren't able to do it.

    Before anyone asks: Yes, I do have both NFC and S beam on and yes I can s-beam pictures just fine. Its a really cool phone but by God how the heck do I s-beam music?!?!

    I spent two whole hours at the Sprint store asking the employees and trying it out on various android phones with NFC capability and still no luck. I then spent a whole day live chatting with Samsung attempting to find out what the problem might be and their solution was clearing the cache and resetting the phone. Still does not work. Then they ended up telling me that you can only s-beam through the defualt samsung music app. Apparently the Google Play Music app will NOT s-beam music because they put digital rights on your music. Still no luck

    If anybody can please tell me what is going on PLEASE tell me! Sprint also told me that there have been a few people who are also experiencing similar problems. Am I the only one here that can't s-beam music on the S4?
