What are QR Codes? What they actually do and How to Use Them?
QR Codes stands for quick response codes. Anybody can have them, they are used in different fields but we are not actually taking advantage from all the uses. As their extensive uses are ambiguous. May be due to requiring a scanner. As they are on different products and we can scan them through scanner.
To understand this concept, just imagine you would need separate devices rather than just separate apps for the same gadget sooner than smartphones came along.
Denso Wave Inc. Originally created QR codes in 1994 for the car industry of Japan; since they gained international standards and are used all over the world.
We had checked a huge number of QR reading apps. A lot of them are first-class and, obviously, it is along to individual choice. We chose to go with Barcode Scanner by Zxing.
Barcode Scanner is obtainable at Google play. We installed this app because it does not come with ads, it is free to use as well. It will surely work on any Android smartphone with a camera as well.
Barcode scanner can also check bar codes amusingly enough, as well as QR codes.
There are many uses of QR codes but they do have data restrictions, same as any other information storage source.
To connect wifi by QR code
Most user routers in homes nowadays will have a QR code printed or stuck on it somewhere.
We also checked the code on one of our routers, and interestingly with the app running, it immediately popped up on the cell phone asking if we would like to connect.
If your router does not have a QR code written then you can easily create it. All you have to do is generate a sticker, print it out and attach it to something that your family can effortlessly see in your home. Create a ‘Connect to your WiFi’ sticker.
QR Creation through Google
You can make any QR code you like on Google. As long as you settle within the parameters talk about earlier it should immediately show the QR image for you to keep save and use.
- Load Google Chrome
- Put in QR code *whatever you want here*
- Press enter and the image supposed to be produced.
QR code scanning on iOS
Soon QR code scanning is approaching to iOS. Once it is offered, all you will have to do is load your camera app (iOS 11) and position it at the code. It should then give you a selection to connect if scanning a wifi QR code.
