QR Codes On Instagram

To recall, the Nametag feature on Instagram allowed users to follow people by scanning the emoji-filled QR code. Now with the universal QR code feature, users can simply find profiles with their smartphone's camera app, without requiring Instagram's camera feature. In other words, the QR code on Instagram has made it much easier to find people.

How To Use QR Code On Instagram?

As noted, the feature is pretty easy to use to find people and profiles to follow on Instagram. Here's how to use the new QR code on Instagram:

Step 1: Open the Instagram app > and open the Settings menu

Step 2: Select the QR Code option in the menu

Step 3: This will redirect to the Instagram QR code with your profile's name below it.

Step 4: Instagram provides you an option to change how your Instagram QR Code appears by tapping on the Color, Emoji, or the Selfie option at the top

Step 5: You can share the Instagram QR code with others by selecting the Share option. You can send it to your contact via other messaging platforms like WhatsApp.

QR Codes On Instagram: How Does It Help?

QR codes have eased the way we do things, right from looking up something to making payments. Instagram is the latest platform to integrate the feature. Recently, WhatsApp also brought in the same feature a few weeks ago, where users can simply scan the QR code and add a new contact on the messaging platform.

The QR codes on Instagram have been in testing in Japan for a year now and are finally rolled out globally. The feature is live now but if you don't see it, try updating the app. The feature should appear in a few days if it's still loading.
