hai @Domhnall and @actech

i want to confirm again. for component webview.
in the documentation realeas. Webviewer component support for “Full Screen Video”

I found it here.

Only support for ios? not support for android?
because I was not able to use the component webviewer (full screen video) on Android.

thank you for the clarification.

Yes only support for iOS. and very good support. you can now hold down on an image in iOS and download or share it. I do agree better android support is needed for this but thunkable Devs depend on the library that helps make the web viewer a thing, and so unless them libraries get updates then don’t expect a lot happening. I think I mentioned this on thunkable X GitHub page, and from what I know that is the answer I got.


Thanks @eoinparkinson for your clarification. :grinning:
