You can make the QR code reader more accessible on Android 13

If all is true, we will be able to access the useful feature in new ways.

The QR codes developed in 1994 (short for Quick Response) have been gaining ground in recent years, with the coronavirus epidemic gaining momentum as contactless communication has become paramount during a pandemic.

Smartphones, such as Android and iOS, now natively support the solution: all we have to do is launch the factory camera app and the software will automatically recognize the codes. If, on the other hand, we can believe the latest rumors, Android 13, codenamed “Tiramisu”, could shake the process up a bit.

The Android Police recently two screenshots reported from a new version of the robotic system, and one suggests that the QR code reader will also be able to be activated on the final screen. Unfortunately, this does not indicate the form in which the surface will be migrated, the image only shows that we can enable the option in the settings of the final screen.

It is possible that the camera will read directly without launching the application, but it is also possible for the lock screen button to activate only the dedicated mode of the camera. Based on the other photo, however, we also get a button in the Quick Settings menu to read the QR codes, which will allow us to start the operation with a single touch.

For the time being, of course, the changes should not be taken for granted, as many things may change in the system until the release of Android, which is expected in the autumn of 13.
