How To Send Bitcoin Using Your Android Bitcoin Wallet
Before learning how to send Bitcoin using the Blockchain.info app on an Android device, be sure to go over our Tips and Advice Page as well as our What is a Digital Wallet Page, and How To Create a Digital Wallet on Your Android.
In this section, we are going to go over send Bitcoin from the Blockchain.info app that you downloaded on your phone. Keep in mind, you have to have Bitcoin in that wallet to be able to send it! If you don't already have Bitcoin in your wallet, check out How to Receive Bitcoin Using Your Android Bitcoin Wallet. Or if you have a receipt from one of our Bitcoin ATMs, check out How to Import Bitcoin into Your Android Bitcoin Wallet.

Next, select "Send". This will take you to another page where you need to enter information of where to send your Bitcoin.
Once on the new page, click on the "To" field. Then, click on the QR code at the top right of your screen. This will pull up your camera on your device.
You have the option either manually enter (type in) the address of the person you are trying to send bitcoin OR you can scan a QR code that they have provided to you. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND scanning a QR code. If you manually enter an address and accidentally enter a wrong number or letter, you run the risk of sending your Bitcoin to the wrong place and there will be no way to retrieve it.
When the camera is pulled up, you can scan the QR code provided to you from the person or business you are sending bitcoin to. This will automatically enter the address into the "To" field from before.
Once you have scanned the QR code, you will want to enter the amount of Bitcoin you want to send. Once you have entered it, double check, then hit the send button at the top right of your screen.
Note: Be sure to enter the exact Bitcoin amount that the person or business is asking for. NOT the USD amount. Bitcoin is constantly changing in value so you will want to make sure you send the Bitcoin amount that was requested.
