Apple released inbuilt applications to make use of the NFC feature (long back). All android phones are still lagging behind, cool features can be added by a simple app to control an existing hardware. (Including AUTOMATION, controlling smart home devices, triggering actions, car mode, widgets etc.) controlling many things like this can be enabled by a inbuilt software. We are wasting lot of potential. it is new technology and futuristic to just tap do do stuff.
NFC tags are really really cheap and most of Samsung flagship smartphones have NFC hardware.
