Amazon slashes Cyber Monday prices for Eero Mesh Wi-Fi systems

Amazon slashed the prices on Eero Mesh Wi-Fi systems and components for Cyber Monday.

If you think of mesh Wi-Fi as the infrastructure that empowers your digital life, however, you may decide to put a range extender or two at the top of your wish list.

It’s easy to take a good Wi-Fi signal for granted, but without Wi-Fi, or with a wireless signal that is erratic or too slow, many of the forces of tech change would falter or fail. TV cable-cutting, smart home security, and talking to Alexa or Google Assistant all depend on Wi-Fi. Amazon owns Eero, the company that makes the mesh Wi-Fi routers and range extenders in the deals below. Whether you’re buying Christmas gifts for others or want a stronger Wi-Fi signal throughout your home, these seven deals can help you save up to $150.

How to create and share WhatsApp QR code for groups

WhatsApp recently released a feature that allowed you to share contacts using a QR Code. This allowed for users to share their own and scan other QR Codes, saving users the trouble of exchanging mobile numbers or contact details. A new feature lets you share WhatsApp QR Code for groups, allowing you to invite others to join your private groups.The feature is currently in beta, but once it becomes public will maintain the same steps.A pre-requisite to this step is being the Admin of a group. This helps prevents members of the group from abusing the feature.In addition, the QR code is static. Anyone with access to the QR code can join the group, so be careful who you share it with.Step 1.If you are the admin of a group, tap on your group settings. You can quickly access this by pressing the header of your group.Alternatively, you can also press the three dots at the top right of the group window, and tapping on Group info.Step 2.Tap on Invite via link. You’ll see a lot of options here, but there will be a new option for QR Code, tap on that.WhatsApp will generate a QR code for that group.Step 3.If you’re looking at scanning the code, go back to your main screen on WhatsApp (where all your chats are located).Press the 3 dots at the top right of the screen and choose Settings. Look to the right of your name and status to see a QR Code icon.Once you tap on it, swipe to the right and you’ll get the option to scan a WhatsApp QR Code.If you’re looking to share the code, you can take a screenshot of the QR code and send it to the person for them to scan via their computer screen using their phone.Alternatively, if the person is in physical distance, they can also scan the code directly from your phone screen.The feature is currently in Beta, and might not be available to all users. You’ll have to wait patiently for the feature to become public.With the help of QR codes, adding people to a group is now further streamlined. You no longer have to add a person as a contact to add them to a group.Errors, omissions? Be sure to let us know what might be wrong and we’ll make an adjustment.
