Touch The Vergecast to the back of your NFC-enabled device for connection, or open the app and simply look for it in the list of compatible devices (note: this method will require you to enter a password that's located inside The Vergecast's battery compartment). You can use The Vergecast remotely once it's paired within the range of two feet or so — the farthest distance from person to microphone, estimated. (Time zones)
