Quick Response code has become ubiquitous nowadays so most phones already have a built in QR scanner to deal with it. The QR scanner on the Galaxy Note10+ can scan codes on products, posters, ads, connect to a Mobile Hotspot or allow a device connect to its own Mobile Hotspot quickly, eliminating the need to enter a password. This makes it even faster to connect to a Mobile Hotspot for two compatible devices. This article will show you what to do to allow a device to connect to your Galaxy Note10+ Mobile Hotspot with ease.
Keep in mind that only Samsung Galaxy devices that runs Android Pie (9.0) OS such as the Galaxy S10 / Note10, S9 / Note9, S8 / Note8 support this function. If you are trying to connect a second device to your Note10 Mobile Hotspot and it doesn’t work, that’s probably because its OS is not up to date.
