Remote Scanner: remote scanner to scan various codes in chatbots and websites

It’s impossible to conveniently scan the code in chatbots and websites. Remote Scanner helps solve this problem. By installing this application on your phone, you can conveniently scan any code inside a chatbot or on a website.

Usage example:

By installing this application on your phone, you can scan any code inside a chatbot or on a website. For example, there is a need to scan the code in a chatbot, you click on the “scan” function, the link opens the scanner, you scan the code and the result is shown in the chatbot. It helps to integrate the scanning function for various tasks easily.

QR and barcode scanner can scan and read all types of QR / barcodes, including text, URLs, product, contacts, calendar, email address, location, and many other formats. You can use a QR and barcode scanner to scan coupons to get discounts and save money. Also, you will be able to make other scans.

Application works in 2 modes:

– You can run and scan any code 

– Remote Scanner is called from other applications in order to scan the code and transfer the result automatically back to the application
