QR codes have become a popular form of social discovery for apps that now include Highlight and Banjo among others. Facebook took a different approach with its “Friends Nearby” feature.

While QR codes are not new they are gaining new live. For example, bitcoin app Coinbase now allows for person-to-person transfers via QR codes.

The Path update also bring a few more utilities for stickers and it supports easier sorting of a user’s list of friends which helps group messaging.
