Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3.
This build includes further fixes for Safari and iOS. Something we've been focusing on for this release is improving audio and video playback, particularly on mobile and in Safari 11. One of the big improvements is it now accurately detects if playback can start or if it needs to wait until the next user input event. Safari 11 has user-customisable autoplay settings, and Cordova allows media to autoplay, but we previously could not detect this. In short this means audio and video autoplay should work in Cordova, as well as anywhere else permission is granted.
Also in case you missed it, we now have a new tutorials section on construct.net where we have started publishing some Construct 3 tutorials. This includes the new Construct 3 focused beginner's guide. Take a look to get up to speed on Construct 3!
