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.

Open your Blockchain.info wallet on your Android device and click on the '+' button on the bottom right of your screen.
Next, select "Receive". This will take you to another page where you can receive your Bitcoin.
Once on the new page, will see a QR code and an address right below it. To receive Bitcoin you can give anyone you want the QR code or the address. Once someone has your address they can send you Bitcoin directly at any time.
You can use this same QR code at our Bitcoin ATMs. Next time you use the machine to Buy Bitcoin, you can scan this QR code at the machine. That way, the Bitcoin is sent directly to your wallet. To learn more about this click here.
