The QR generator currently only opens a page that provides a scan QR code or a QR code generation, but it doesn’t really work, i.e. when you click on the icon, it doesn’t trigger any action, which indicates that the entire functionality is still in development.

The second line of the shared dialog box allows the user to share with other apps. Scroll to the right again and there will be an “more” option that will open the default shared menu for Android 10. These apps are likely to be tailored to the user’s usage, and they look refreshing and simple.

It is reported that users can open the new sharing interface on a device running Chrome Cannary by going to chrome: /flags to open the logo of the .chrome-sharing-hub and the hashtag .chrome-share-screen. Given that the feature is still hidden in the Canary version, it’s to be expected to wait until the final stable version arrives.
