QR Codes and Google Lens Tutorial
By Oleg Moskalensky Productive Computer Systems
During this live streamed event, Oleg delivered educational material and use cases how to adopt QR codes in various daily and business situations.
Here is the overview by Oleg:
Don’t have/want QR scanning app – just use Google Photos & Google Lens
Historically, you had to have an app on your mobile phone to scan QR codes, which are seen more and more all around us. There are plenty of scanning apps in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store, some free, some aren’t. But what if you didn’t want another app on your phone? Well, it turns out you don’t have to have one.
You can use Google Lens to scan QR codes and since it’s now built into Google Photos – you already have what you need to scan those codes.
Simply take a photo of anything with QR code on it (monitor, paper, another phone… anything with QR code on it), then open that photo in Google Photos and click on Google Lens icon. It’ll quickly examine the image and allow you to process that QR code.
What if you get email on your phone and thus can’t take its photo? Simple enough – just do a screenshot with QR code visible and then open it up in Google Photos (as above) and the rest of the process is the same.
I hope you found this tutorial as useful as I did.
