Google have added to their URL shortening services “Goo.gl,” a nifty new feature i.e. just add “.qr” to the end of any shortened link, and Google will generate a QR code for it. For e.g., the link http://goo.gl/SJhz would become http://goo.gl/SJhz.qr. The new trick was tweeted by Google’s Matt Cutts. For those looking to try out the new feature, the Goo.gl homepage still says that the service is “currently available for Google products and not for broader consumer use”, but it’s plenty easy to start using it yourself. It’s officially available through Google Toolbar and FeedBurner, and you can also find various bookmarklets and browser extensions that let you generate a Goo.gl link.
