Google just launched their URL Shortener for public along with providing stats and more on link clicks. However, it looks like Google’s URL Shortener also has a hidden feature where you can convert a URL to a QR code which can then be read by a mobile device.
QR codes have become quite a norm with newspapers, websites and magazines where people are asked to click a picture and read the QR code to perform certain actions. Now you will be able to do the same without having to worry about using software to create the codes.
To create a QR code with Goo.gl, just shorten the URL and add ".qr" to the end of it. For example http://goo.gl/InvA is the shortened URL for http://techie-buzz.com, adding .qr to the URL (http://goo.gl/InvA.qr) will display the QR code which you can then download and add to your webpage or application.
Go ahead, try this out. Scan the above QR code to see some nice things
