What was included in Chrome 29 on Desktop and Android release


The capabilities of WebRTC in the Google Chrome browser continue to grow, and some pretty major bugs are squashed. The biggest news for us at TokBox is that Chrome for Android now supports WebRTC out of the box without needing to enable a flag. This expands the footprint of endpoints with WebRTC capability to include Android devices which is a great step forward.

Now, on to the details

  • Fixed a crash that happens when audio capture is not properly initialized
  • Stereo playback in Mac

Pepper Flash
