Instagram Launches QR codes Worldwide

 Instagram is bringing QR codes to the app. Users can now generate QR codes that’ll be scannable from any supporting, third-party camera apps.

Last year Instagram added some Snapchat-like nametags that could bring a friend to your profile just by pointing their Instagram app’s camera at the code. Now, it’s widely launching QR codes that work in a similar way but with one key difference.
