Samsung Galaxy S8 How to use QR code reader - solved

If you are looking for a QR code scanner in the preinstalled applications on your Samsung Galaxy S8, then you will most probably not find it. The QR Code Scanner, which is also suitable for reading bar codes, has been integrated into another app. And this is the Internet browser.

We now explain to you how to activate the QR reader on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and then use it:

  1. Activate the extension in the Internet browser

Please open the Internet browser on your Samsung Galaxy S8. In the upper right corner, tap the icon with the three dots - A menu appears.

Now select "Extensions" and then activate the controller with "QR code reader"

  1. Scan QR codes

To do this, tap the symbol with the three dots again in the upper right corner. A new menu item is now "Scan QR Code". Select this and confirm that Samsung is allowed to use your camera. Then you can scan a QR code. The result will be displayed directly in the browser.

You now know the procedure to scan a QR code on the Samsung Galaxy S8.

QR-code scanner is available in the Camera. Click "Bixby Vision" (or "Bixby Camera") in the top left corner.

There's also the possibility to use Bixby Vision via the Camera app. Just scroll horizontally among Bixby Vision's modes to select the QR code reader.
