Need a QR Code? Quickly Generate a QR Code With This URL

Previously, we shown you how to create a QR code in Google Drive. All you need to do is to paste the formula into the cell and it will generate a QR code based on the content of another cell. Apparently, using the same API call, we can quickly get a QR code by just visiting a URL.

In your browser, paste the following URL:

https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&chl=

At the end of the URL, append the content you want to embed. For example, for a QR code with a URL link:

https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&chl=http://www.maketecheasier.com

or a QR code with text:

https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&chl=How are you

and this is what you will see:

qr-code-url

Simple and fast!
