Everything is done digitally these days. From the payments you make at a shop to checking the price of the product via a barcode scanner, people rely mostly on the electronic gadgets to make things easier. And these days, some of the products do not come with a price tag and would have only the barcode. In such cases, you cannot just go to the shopkeeper to scan and let you know the price details of the product you are going to purchase.

Google is trying to make our life simpler through its apps across the platforms. It has provided apps which don’t just scan the QR codes anymore but will also scan the regular barcodes at the same time. All you need to do is just to launch the Google Assistant by long pressing the home button or saying “OK Google” and then tap on the Google Lens icon.

Now, after pointing your camera at the QR Code, the Lens will automatically detect the QR code after which a colorful dot will appear over the QR code. Now, if you would tap on the dot, the corresponding information will appear at the bottom of the screen.

Now, to scan and obtain information from the barcodes, launch the Google Lens and point your camera at the barcode. And then tap on the same to view more information about the product or related products.

We hope this tutorial on the scanning the barcodes and QR Codes will help you in saving a lot of time and make your life much simpler.
