One of them is the scanner function, which Xiaomi integrates as a pre-installed tool on your phones. In this way we can make document scanning or QR code scanner to access web pages or activate services.

How to use the Xiaomi scanner

The good news is that Xiaomi’s scanner is on the same desktop, so it will not take us long to find the function nor will we have to get lost in different menus to activate it. It should be borne in mind that the scanning of documents with this Xiaomi tool is far from approaching the professional scanning of a real scanner, but we can pass the procedure when we are left with no other choice or we do not need enormous quality.
