A Zoom QR code is a quick and easy way to join video conferences. A QR code is generated using a QR code generator.
With just one scan, attendees are instantly led to a specific Zoom meeting.
Even more than that, Zoom QR codes open you to a lot of creative promotional ideas.
For one, you can use them to boost your social media following.
Read on to learn more about how you can creatively use QR codes in Zoom meetings and their other uses.
Can you join a Zoom meeting with a QR code?
Absolutely. You can use a QR code to 'zoom in' or instantly access a Zoom meeting.
To create a QR code for a Zoom meeting, the host can just copy the Zoom meeting link and embed it within a URL QR code generator online.
Your attendees will only need to scan the giant QR code for Zoom calls with their smartphones to join your meeting instantly.
This method removes the hassle of sending long links to attendees, which can often lead to confusion.
Some attendees might also lose the meeting details.
If you send the email invite along with a Zoom QR code, then they're sure to save the date on their calendar and can easily attend your meeting with just one scan.
“But wait, that means I can only join the Zoom meeting via my smartphone, right?”
No, because you can also use your laptop’s camera to scan the QR code.
To do this, you just have to display the QR code on your smartphone screen and place it in front of your laptop camera to scan and join.
How to scan a Zoom QR code?
You can scan a Zoom QR code using your smartphone's camera. The latest smartphone models today now have built-in scanners in their cameras.
In scanning, you don't have to zoom out and zoom in on the QR code.
You only have to hold your device over the code at an appropriate scanning device.
Also, make sure that your QR code size is set at the right distance.
Some smartphones — especially Android phones — also have a pre-installed scanner app. You can also install a third-party scanner app, such as the QR TIGER app.
The QR TIGER app lets you scan QR codes and generate basic QR code types from your smartphone.
It is available for download on Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
How do you use QR codes in a Zoom meeting?
