The solution for your issue can be found on the app's help page. As I already guessed, you need to install a barcode reader app. But not just "any", ist has to be a specific one. And moreover, even my guess for ZXing Reader was absolutely correct – if you take a closer look at the screenshot taken from that place: Screenshot from the Google Authenticator ...

As Sachin correctly states: If you want to immediately execute any action, the barcode scanner will become the background app -- and your auto[mat] is moved into a garage.

The Bar-coded Boarding Pass (BCBP) code is common for flight tickets. There could be other codes too, but there doesn't seem to be any app for it yet. Mails also have different codes.

Update your WhatsApp to the latest version (2.11.498) and you will see the menu option WhatsApp -> Menu -> WhatsApp Web. I have updated mine and am able to use WhatsApp web with the same menu option.

Yes, just download an app and run it. You can't visually look at a QR code and decode it with your brain.

Make sure that you use the QR reader build in Whatsapp and not an separated app. You can access the QR reader in Whatsapp by entering the menu at the main screen. If Whatsapp Web doesn't show up in the menu list then you either haven't installed the latest version of Whatsapp or you have to reboot your device in order to make it appear in the menu.

I had the very same issue with my Galaxy Y Duos. Rotating the phone or laptop screen through screen preferences didn't help me. Finally the solution was to use 'Flip This' chrome extension and rotate the QR code by 90 degrees. The WhatsApp logo at the center of the QR code would not change its orientation on the camera (as it is a different image) but the QR ...

NeoReader should match your specification: Scans all standard 1D and 2D code types – QR, Data Matrix, Aztec, EAN, UPC, Code 39, Code 128, PDF 417 and more! Automatic detection of code type (emphasis mine) As GiantTree identified one of your non-standard codes as "Aztec", this app sounds promising. It doesn't explicitly mention your other ...

Right, that sounds to me like you might have a slow internet connection resulted by too many users online at the time or various other reasons. I am assuming you are talking about the mobile version of Chrome (or do you mean the computer version)? This will work either way: Try to restart your browser and making sure all add-ons and browser updates etc. ...

First off you need to use a QR Code Reader. There is no way around that. You can't teach some to read QR's, but you can show them the proper way of using such an app. Most of the readers have built in dummy instructions - such as center the code in the picture, how far away to get a good reading and other useful tidbits. Besides if they can take a picture ...

I'm a big fan of QR Code Generator from the ZXing Project. It's a web app that quickly lets you enter in any text to create a QR code. It will also allow you to enter structured info (URL's, Contact Info, Wifi-network credentials), and creates QR Codes from that. The benefit there is that you may have apps that are set up to handle structured data. E.g.: a ...
