One of the functionalities that have been used the most after the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic has been the QR code reader that is integrated in practically all smartphones. And it is no wonder, since due to the health situation the use of these codes was established as a preventive measure to avoid physical contact with letters, for example. For this reason, it is important to know where this feature is located within your Huawei smartphone with EMUI.
In addition to the fact that its usability will be quite simple as you can see below, and it will hardly take us a few seconds to find this tool that is integrated in all the smartphones of the Chinese firm. We will even have several ways to quickly access the QR code reader that comes in Huawei mobile devices. Although, it must be borne in mind that the methods to access will always lead to the same point, the smartphone camera.
Where is the QR reader of a Huawei
A few years ago, this scanner was not integrated into smartphones as standard, so it was necessary to have a third-party application to be able to read this type of code. However, the smartphones of this brand have this possibility as standard within their AI Lens function, which became the replacement for HiVision as of the EMUI 9.1 version.
Therefore, if you need to access the QR code reader of your Huawei, keep in mind that you must have at least this version of EMUI or a higher one. To do this, you will have to enter the camera of your smartphone and click on the button that appears in the image, better known as AI Lens. Once we have clicked on it, a series of tools will be displayed, the first being the code reader as can be seen in the following image.
In addition, we can also access the reader in two more ways:
- From the search bar: slide your finger down on the panel of your mobile to see the search bar> tap on the AI Lens switch.
- From the lock screen: when your mobile is locked, slide your finger up from the bottom of the panel and click on AI Lens. Then, you will have to unlock the device to access it.
