Currently the QR code has become a very useful tool to transfer data to any device that has a camera and an application to process this element.
This has gradually made web browsers adopt the QR code as an option to open a web page directly.
However, Google Chrome seemed reluctant to integrate the QR code as part of its functions. It would not be until a beta version when Google Chrome made the decision to integrate it, then transitioning to the stable version where users could have the opportunity to share websites through this modality.
Although this function is present in the latest version of Google Chrome for mobile, it is not active by default, which is why you should activate some elements known as chrome flags.
As a first step to activate the chrome flags you should open Chrome on the mobile and access chrome: // flags in the browser. Once you have entered this section you will have to look for 3 options related to the renewal of the share menu and change its value to Enabled (activated). Here we show it to you in video:
The options are as follows:
- Chrome Share QRCode # chrome-share-qr-code: This refers to the QR code function that you should activate, as well as the share menu.
- Chrome Share Screenshotso # chrome-share-screenshot: This represents another way of sharing web pages through a screenshot.
- Chrome Sharing There was # chrome-sharing-hub: This option constitutes the new Chrome share menu.
After activating these 3 options in enabled, you must restart the browser by clicking on the button at the bottom.
Once done, the Share option will appear in the menu, with the QR mode on it, as shown in the series of screenshots above.
