How to Scan QR Code Using Google Chrome on iPhone and iPad

Now, use Google Chrome to instantly scan any QR code on your iPhone and avoid using a standalone QR code scanner.

You can now use Google Chrome to quickly scan QR code (machine-readable code which typically store URLs or other information) on your iPhone. The best thing about it is that you will no longer have to install a standalone QR code scanner app just to scan or read QR code.

It’s a very helpful feature from users’ perspective. Google Chrome being such a popular web browser, it’s added more value to it, hasn’t it? So the next time, you come across any QR code, fire up the web browser to instantly scan it. Let’s find out how it works!
