qr code

Technology is here to make life easier and more fun, and one of the most interesting advances in recent years is QR codes . It is a series of “stickers” that have become popular in recent years and that allow us to access different services with a simple scan of our mobile.

At first, QR codes were more visual than functional. It was ‘cool’ to see and scan them, but after the initial explosion, interest waned. Of course, these codes have found their place and we see them on routers to not put passwords, in shops, on WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp Business and, above all, in car sharing services and rental of electric scooters.

If you want to know how to scan a QR code easily with your Android or iPhone , we teach you how to do it.

Scan a QR code with an Android mobile

Let’s start with the tutorial to scan a QR code on Android . In the Google system, really, there are several options for this, but fortunately in the latest versions of the system, Android has created a unique tool.

If you want, you can download an app from the Play Store to scan QR codes , but you should know that if you have the Google Assistant app, you have Google Lens and, with it, a tool to scan QR codes.

To open Google Lens within Assistant, all you have to do is go to the corresponding Google Assistant app and click on the Lens icon . There, the assistant’s artificial intelligence application opens, point the camera at the code you want to scan … and voila, the link appears to go to the corresponding app, page or service. If you have a Samsung, with Bixby you can do the same .

There are mobiles that have Lens integrated into the camera . All you have to do is, in automatic mode, click on the Lens icon that appears somewhere in the camera interface.

And other terminals have an app installed on the camera to read QR codes. It is usually hidden in a section of the “more” options in the camera app

Scanning a QR with an iPhone, an easier task

On iOS, things are a little easier. There are apps that recognize QR codes, but the system itself has an integrated tool that allows us to read a QR without having to download absolutely anything.

All you have to do to scan a QR code with your iPhone is open the toolbar (the menu that we activate by pulling from the bottom of the screen) and look for the QR code icon. Press and the camera is activated. All you have to do is focus on the code you want to scan and when we have it, a notification will appear notifying us about the scanned code.

iOS does not automatically open the code and instead we must click on the previous notification to grant our permission and go to the QR code link.

As you can see, it is very easy to scan a QR code with your mobile , since, especially Android users, you already know that with Assistant you have integrated the tool that makes life easier without having to download any application.

Rajasthan Political Crisis: Six ‘BSP MLAs’ Move Supreme Court, Seek Transfer of Case on Merger With Congress From HC

Supreme Court of India

Jaipur, August 8: Six MLAs who had won in the 2018 Rajasthan assembly elections on the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) ticket moved the Supreme Court on Saturday seeking the transfer of the case against their merger with the Congress to the top judicial body. The proceedings in their case is currently underway in the Rajasthan High Court. BSP Twist to Rajasthan Political Row: Mayawati’s Party to File Plea in HC Tomorrow Against Merger of Its 6 MLAs With Congress.

The six legislators – R Gudha, Lakhan Singh, Deep Chand, JS Awana, Sandeep Kumar and Wajib Ali – had joined the Congress en masse in September 2019. Speaker CP Joshi had approved their merger as the entire legislature party of the BSP in Rajasthan had switched camps.

The BSP, led by former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati, moved the High Court on July 28 with a plea challenging their merger. The party claimed that since it is registered as a “national political party”, such a merger could be validated only if all state units of the BSP merge with the Congress.

The case filed by BSP in the Rajasthan HC was preceded by a whip issued to the six MLAs, directing them to vote against the Ashok Gehlot-led government in the state in case of a trust vote.

If the High Court order annuls their merger with Congress and rules that the MLAs still belong to the BSP, they would be required to adhere to the party whip. If the legislators violate the whip issued to them in case of a trust vote, their membership of the House could be cancelled.
