Google Now digital airline boarding passes use QR codes
Google has come up with a fantastic way to make your wait at the airport slightly shorter. The search engine giant has unveiled service that displays your boarding pass on your smartphone’s display! All you need to do is check-in with the airline as usual and use the Google Now system. The service automatically retrieves a digital boarding pass with a barcode and more information including the terminal, gate, and seat number.
On reaching the gate, the user simply needs to display this digital boarding pass, have the QR code scanned and hop on to the airplane! The Google Now system could very well help shorten queues at airports and make flying a simpler process.
