3D Backgrounds in VR Browser

VR Browser has new 3D Backgrounds, so you can now browse the web while hanging out on a sunny city terrace or relaxing in a penthouse lounge.

3D WebView v2.6.0 Released

Added new IWebView methods and properties to 3D WebView:

Improvements:

  • Made it so that a placeholder image is shown in the webview while running in the editor
  • Updated MockWebView so that it logs messages to indicate when its methods are called while running in the editor
  • Added a WebViewPrefab.Init() method for initializing the prefab to its current dimensions set via the editor
  • Implemented AndroidWebView.Focus()
  • Updated the iOS plugin to expose VXWebViewAppController so that other plugins can extend it

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where calling WebViewPrefab.Resize() before it's initialized would cause a NullReferenceException
  • Fixed an issue where navigating to the YouTube homepage while a video is playing would cause the video to continue playing
  • Fixed an issue on Oculus Quest where video from a previous page would continue to play after loading about:blank
  • Fixed an issue where Android Q expected HTML passed to IWebView.LoadHtml() to have # characters URL-encoded as %23
