Instagram is a popular social media app that allows users to share photos and videos, as well as communicate and connect with people all over the world. The app recently added a new feature that allows users to generate QR codes and add other users by scanning their QR codes. This feature was first introduced in Japan last year, and it is now available globally.

Instagram users can now generate QR codes that can be scanned by any camera app that supports QR codes. This new Instagram QR feature will be extremely beneficial to businesses, as they can simply print their QR code and have customers scan it. Customers can view store hours, purchase items, learn about special offers, or simply follow the account from there.

QR codes, on the other hand, make it easier for people to scan and add the other user without much difficulty. If you want to add someone on Instagram using a QR code, follow the steps outlined below.
