Windows Camera, Microsoft’s application for capturing images via your computer’s webcam, should gain a new feature for native QR Code scanning.
The discovery came from a Twitter user named ALumia, who found a hidden feature in the app, suggesting that Microsoft is working on updates and adding a QR Code reader to the app.

The tool should facilitate the download of documentation for devices that have QR Code codes. Thus, it would not be necessary to use the cell phone and access the information on the small screen.
Microsoft has not officially commented on this supposed novelty, nor has it been revealed exactly which version of Windows 10 is bringing this hidden element. There is still no provision for the feature to be implemented for users.
