How to share links using QR code

Yet again Google Chrome is getting a new feature that will allow users to share websites and links as a QR code. Which can be decoded by compatible devices such as smartphones’s camera and/or Google Lens.

Though the feature is yet to make to the final version of Google Chrome, the testing version of the browser usually known as Chrome Canary has this feature. However, it is turned off by default and users will have to enable it manually by heading into the ‘flags’ section where Google usually hides the experimental features of the browser.

Pre-requisites:
Google Chrome Canary must be installed on your PC
Working internet connectivity

  • Assuming you already have Chrome Canary installed on your device, open it
  • Then type-in ‘chrome://flags/#sharing-qr-code-generator’ in the address bar of the browser
  • This will automatically redirect you to flags page directly
  • Now, to save some time press ctrl + f on your PC and type QR Code and press enter
  • Choose the option Enable from the box in front of the option ‘Enable sharing page via QR code’
  • Then click on Relaunch Now button from the bottom of the screen
  • To use this feature, open any webpage and click on three-dots and then click on the option ‘Generate QR code for this page’
