The Galaxy A11 does indeed have a QR scanner built into Microsoft office as well as the camera. However, this article shows there are no settings for it to be turned off or on in the camera app, it's just on by default. The article states the option for QR scanning can also be found in your Quick Panel: https://www.devicesfaq.com/en/read-qr-codes/samsung-galaxy-a11?fbclid=IwAR2H9bsDuZEYUjUwh590FYAPOMUP...

Yes it does. Go to your camera app, the tap the settings icon (a gear) in the top left, then find the setting that says "Scan QR codes". Make sure the switch to the right of that is blue, if not tap it to turn on the setting. Now, when you point your phone at a QR code, it should scan.

Under what setting is the "Scan QR codes" setting found? I own an A11 and can't find it anywhere.

Hi! Were you able to get the QR codes to read? I've reviewed the recommended article but there I can't find an option for "Intelligent Features" or toggle option for QR codes on mg phone within the Camera Settings

i actually found a QR code scanner built-in to a system app, Microsoft Office. i never could find any of the camera settings posted above.
