Thank you for your reply Ashley!
Are you sure it's to do with the webview version and not something else?
I’m no expert but I’m pretty confident it is the WebView because every time I update the Android System WebView on someone phone where before it wasn't working, it is now working.
For example, I have myself an old phone on which it wasn’t working (which a WebView version 71.0.3578.99). I updated WebView to 80.0.3987.119 and now it’s working fine.
So are you sure you are seeing this message?
There is no message, I was just saying it would be good to have the possibility to add a warning message with a link to update if WebView is out of date.
It's hard to imagine why this would not have been the case.
Unfortunately, people there have crappy phones and, as you said, try to save space and data so they don't keep their phones up to date.. Actually some people do the same in Europe so those cases occur more often then what I thought in the first place, especially for my target audience. And that why I really need a solution because I can’t tell myself every person to update their WebView…
So is there a way to either:
- Embedded/integrate the update of the Android System WebView within the game to automatically make it work?
- in case the WebView is out of date on the phone and the game doesn’t work, put a warning message saying something like “please update your phone by clicking this link” or so?
I'm keen to find out the reasons behind this, and would be grateful if you could shed some light on that.
I'll continue to collect data and share it with you as much as I can.
More customers asking in that issue might help
Thanks, I'll ask to Google myself to show support but it would be very nice and needed to have some possibilities from Construct because Google as being a big company might take some time..
