Instagram Launches QR Codes for Opening Profiles Using any Camera App

Instagram has been through some drastic changes in the recent past, and it seems like it will continue by the same rhythm. The app just merged with Facebook Messenger, a move that is part of an even greater plan. Facebook plans to unify all its apps into a single one. This means that all our conversations from Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp will be accessible from a single app.

Only in the US, there are 112.5 million people using Instagram. This means about a third of the country’s entire population. Therefore, Instagram wouldn’t afford to stop trying to give its users great services.

QR codes arrive to Instagram

The social network received its QR codes, and users can generate them easily. These codes are scannable from any camera. The intention is for businesses to print their QR code and get customers to scan it. This method will open the Instagram accounts more easily. The process of generating your QR code on Instagram is simple: you just have to head for the settings menu within your profile and tap QR code.

Instagram is surely worth using in 2020, and the Play Store description summarizes pretty well what the app can do:

Connect with friends, share what you’re up to, or see what’s new from others all over the world. Explore our community where you can feel free to be yourself and share everything from your daily moments to life’s highlights.

Going further, the description says:

* Add photos and videos to your INSTA story that disappear after 24 hours, and bring them to life with fun creative tools.
* Message your friends in Direct. Start fun conversations about what you see on Feed and Stories.
* Post photos and videos to your feed that you want to show on your profile.

Feel free to test QR codes on Instagram!
