Enable 2D scanning of barcodes.

Status: Planned

Planning to add support for QR codes as well as introduce a new and better scanner for barcodes by late summer 2018.

I agree!  This is critical to my app.  Please update the barcode scanner to support 2d scanning

Fantastic Audrie, I was currently investigating how to do a workaround my current issue.  The goal is to be able to get info from a PC application by pointing the mobile / tablet at the screen. The info is a URI and the barcodes supported today are too small (in terms of info that can be communicated).

QR Code is the prevalent way to get info from labels today, so I hope that this will come-up soon.  It would be nice if, in the same fashion that you have a sophisticated control with the Input Ink control, you could have an "Office Lens" control that could be configured for "Whiteboard", "Business Card", "Barcode / QR-Code", "Document", "Photo".  Since these apps are already on iOS and Android, it shouldn't be too far fetched :-)

Hi Audrie,

 Any idea when QR code scanning might be implemented?  I would really like to start building some apps but they all use QR codes!

Please add QR scanning to the app. It will allow me to use Power apps for my functionality. 

Or tell me when it will be added?

I am developing a Sharepoint/PowerApp-based inventory for my company. 2D (QR or matrix) code recognition is a highly desired feature.

All our assets (process & lab equipment and building items) are coded with QR, so I prefer powerapp can read this and use this code in the app.20170730 QR code sticker Lex.jpg

 Any updates on this? The status was changed to Under review six months ago. Is there a time frame when we can expect to scan QR codes?
