How to Scan a QR Code on Your Android Phone
- Android phones can scan QR codes in two different ways. The first is to use your phone’s built-in camera and the second is to download a QR code scanning app. We’ll show you how to do both.
- To scan a QR code using your built-in camera, open the Camera app and point it steadily for 2-3 seconds towards the QR code you want to scan. If your phone is able to scan the code, a notification will appear saying “QR code detected.” Tap on the notification and select “Open in Browser” or “Open Link.” If you don’t see a notification, open your Camera app’s main menu and look for a button labeled “Scan QR code.” Once you’ve found it, tap on it and point your camera at the code.
- To scan a QR code using an Android app, download and install a QR code scanner from the Google Play Store. Once it’s installed, open the app and point your phone’s camera at the code you want to scan. Some apps will automatically scan the code and open its contents while others will provide you with a button that says “Scan” or “Tap to Scan.” Tap this button and hold your phone steady for 2-3 seconds so the app can read the code. When it’s done scanning, you’ll be taken to the website or other content associated with that QR code.
