Transferring photos from camera using NFC

I can no longer tranfer photos from my Powershot SX530 HS to my Galaxy S9 Android phone using NFC. Keeping getting message "Due to changes in the Android OS specifications, from version 2.7.0 of Camera Connect, Wi-Fi connection using NFC touch is no longer available. Please use another connection method". Any ideas how to fix this? One of the reasons I purchased this camera was because of the NFC option and now I can't use it.

Don't use NFC.  NFC is obsolete and has been superseded by Bluetooth.

The Powershot SX530 HS doesn't have Bluetooth.

Canon Connect does not use NFC.  It uses Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Since your camera does not have Bluetooth, your only option is to use the  Camera Connect App with Wi-Fi.

This camera sends images to smartphones and tablet computers that have Wi-Fi functions.
This article explains [how to connect to a smartphone by pressing the Wi-Fi button to send the images in the camera].
For instructions on how to send images using the NFC function with an Android™ smartphone (OS version 4.0 or higher) that supports NFC, refer to Sending Images from a Camera to an Android Smartphone via NFC Connection.

Can someone help me with this please?  Samsung note 10 plus I got over the summer and now suddenly can't use the canon connect app with my EOS 80D, same error.  There is no Bluetooth on the 80D so had to use NFC but if you can do it with out the NFC and just wifi can someone explain how or point me to instructions.
