Android developers have made a lot of effort to ensure that the next version of Google’s mobile platform is as user-friendly as possible. After utilizing all previous version of Android Q, I can confidently say that this Android iteration can be easily picked up to be the best yet.
How can I say that? There are lots of things that developers have done to make Android even simpler. Suppose, for example, the ability to easily share WiFi network settings. There is a new functionality that enables you to transfer your WiFi setup using a simple QR code.
What does that mean? If you own a company that provides WiFi for visitors, you can print the QR code and publish it so that visitors only need to scan the code to access your wireless network.
It’s that simple.
But how do you utilize this new feature? Let me show you.
What you need?
You need to run Android Q to do this work. Q is not officially released yet, so you need to sign up for a beta program to take advantage of this feature.
If you prefer not to use beta software on your daily driver, you can always wait for the official release of Android Q.
Note that the QR code receiver does not have to run Android Q. All you need is the QR Code Reader (Get it for free from google play store and install it).
How to find the QR code
Follow these steps to find the QR code for WiFi settings.
Open the Settings on your Android Q compatible device.
Press Network & Internet.
Press the WiFi connection name which you want to share.
In the Network details screen click the Share button.
Scan your fingerprint or enter your PIN / Pattern when prompted.
At this stage, you will see the QR code for the WiFi network. You have two option, either take a snapshot or print it that code (For printing, you must have set up on your Android device.). With this in mind, all users must scan the code using a QR reader to automatically connect to the WiFi network associated with the QR code.
Simplified WiFi setup
You will never find the easiest way to configure WiFi on a mobile device.
With this new feature, without having to be present, you can share this wireless configuration with clients or customers.
