Frequently Asked Questions

How can a user use an SMS QR code?

If the SMS QR code is dynamic, both iOS and Android users will get redirected to their default messaging app upon scanning the code, with the text message and recipient’s phone number already filled. If the SMS QR code is static, Android users will need to click on ‘Send SMS’ in their QR scanner app to get redirected to the messaging app. For iOS users, the process is similar to the dynamic SMS QR code.

Why should I use an SMS QR code?

An SMS QR code eliminates the need for users to open their messaging app and manually enter the phone number and text message. The messaging process becomes faster, and it also enhances the user experience.

Can I edit the phone number and message of an SMS QR code?

If you create a dynamic SMS QR code, you can edit the phone number and the text message without reprinting the QR code. Also, you can track its scans. However, you can neither edit the contents of a static QR code nor track its scans.
