This Well-Meaning Chrome Update Broke Several Apps and Games

Now, automatic mute won't apply to anything using the Web Audio API until Chrome 70, which scheduled for release in October. The team here is working hard to improve things for users and developers, but in this case we didn't do a good job of communicating the impact of the new autoplay policy to developers using the Web Audio API.
However, the unintended effect of silencing web games has prompted Google to temporarily remove the autoplay policy for the Web Audio API, which is used by many web games.
Google said Tuesday it's updated its Chrome browser to temporarily remove a recent change that broke the audio on several web-based games. Users and developers have listed dozens of web games and audio sites that were broken after Chrome 66. However, since it was released last month, the policies have negatively affected games and other web experiences.
Hence a post to the list from Google product management chap John Pallett, who wrote "We've updated Chrome 66 to temporarily remove the autoplay policy for the Web Audio API".
As per a report in The Verge, a developer named Ashley Gullen had revealed the ways to fix the issue, but Pallett has said that it is a "non-trivial user interface challenge". Some requested user interface elements that would allow people to control how autoplay content is handled in Chrome, while others simply wanted their games to play their usual variety of music and in-game sounds.
The autoplay blocking is an example of how browsers are getting more assertive on behalf of users faced with pushy websites.
GOOGLE HAS been forced to roll back its new autoplay policy for web video in Chrome after it became apparent that it was borking legitimate content. Unless web developers scramble to use the Web Audio API instead of those tags, Chrome should continue to save your ears from unwanted and potentially obnoxious noises while you browse. But the company is partially rolling back the change after it was discovered to be breaking a number of web games, apps, and interactive art projects. But whether this loophole will end up being abused to autoplay video with sound and get developers to update their apps to avoid them being muted remains to be seen.
