QR CodeHope you guys are aware about the public launch of Google’s URL Shortener service — Goo.gl. Goo.gl has features like automatic spam detection and it has nearly 100% uptime since their initial launch. You can use your Google account to view URL history, traffic sources, referrers and visitor profiles for countries, browsers and platforms.

I came to know Goo.gl has an awesome Easter Egg which instantly turns any link into a QR Code. A QR Code is a matrix barcode (or 2D code), readable by QR scanners, mobile phones with a camera, and smartphones. You can easily create it using this simple URL tweak. Earlier also we were able to generate QR codes using Goo.gl, but that was not the official way, and now since Goo.gl is live, we can easily generate them.


How To Create QR Code Using Goo.gl

Really simple, just go to Goo.gl and shorten the URL.

Now add “.qr” to the end of it.

For example, the shortened URL for HellBound Bloggers is http://goo.gl/A15k. Now add .qr to the URL, i.e., http://goo.gl/A15k.qr. Now it will display the following QR code.

Also check the Konami Easter egg code for Google Docs.

What’s the big deal? What’s the use of this?

These QR codes are great for mobile use. Google has been using them a lot for stuffs like easy installation of Android apps.
