Add QR code functionality to the Oculus Quest API
Allowing developers to include QR code functionality in their apps could reduce a lot of friction to getting location-based users into VR.
A few use cases are:
- Automatically login to a VR training course by scanning a QR code from a phone or laptop
- Start a VR game by scanning a QR code at a VR arcade
- Open WebVR apps by scanning a code or business card
These codes can by used as shortcuts to skip navigating menus or typing on cumbersome VR keyboards.
If developers get access to the result of a QR code scan (e.g. a string or url), it can open up a lot of quality of life improvements for end users.
Thank you for your consideration.

It would also be perfect for joining WiFi network at nursing homes.
Many 70 year olds find Quest 2 easy -- except for entering a WiFi password.
WiFi QR codes can solve this problem -- since we have to mail them a Quest 2 headset. Nursing homes are like covid jails in this pandemic, and Quest 2 is a big lifesaver!!!
