    It's probably been answered before but the wpcentral app is still quite limiting. You used to just be able to press the eye and scan a barcode or whatever. Where has that gone?

    Open the camera app, open lenses, select Bing Vision

    What a load of rubbish. You can't even search barcodes anymore, only QR codes

    We are going to lose those abilities (except QR codes). WPCentral covered that in the article "Bing Vision lost all features but QR scanning".

    To bring back that "eye" icon from Bing search, install app "Tile For Bing Vision" and pin an "eye" tile to your homescreen.

    Alternatively, I have installed app named just "QR", so I can start scanning from Cortana by saying "Open QR", or alternatively longer "QR scan QR code" (this works better in case you have installed multiple QR apps).

    Also, app named "QR Scanner RS" (or "QR Scanner+") is good, that one can handle also EAN codes (barcodes), unfortunately it does not have speech support (Cortana integration).

    I don't have 10 posts, that's why I am not allowed to include any link in my post. Forum limitation.

    OK, replying quite late, but I think this might still be useful for someone now. I updated my previous comment with proper links.
