The popular photo-sharing app has added a new feature that will allow you to generate QR codes for their profiles. These can be scanned from any camera app.
Once a QR code is scanned with a third-party camera app, users will be led to your Instagram account. They can then follow, browse through, or check for information.
The new feature was first launched in Japan in 2019. You can take a picture of the Instagram QR code from your default phone camera too.
How To Create Your QR Code On Instagram App
- Update to the latest update
- Go on the Menu option on your Instagram profile
- Click on QR code
- Now, you can customize the background – from the available colors or pick an emoji pattern or click a selfie
- Once done, save or take a screenshot to send to potential followers
- Alternatively, you can also print your QR code
Note: The new feature is likely rolled out in stages. If you see a Nametag option instead of QR code, the update is yet to reach you.
The new feature is similar to the Instagram’s Nametag. However, unlike Nametag the new QR codes can be scanned by any camera app (not just via Instagram).
Instagram claims that the new feature will allow professionals and businesses-owners to print their QR codes or send them directly to potential customers.
Recently, WhatsApp also added a QR code for WhatsApp Business that allows users to easily chat with a business representative.
