Google has partially rolled back Chrome's blocking of autoplaying video with sound after it was found to break a large collection of web apps and games. Google now plans on re-introducing the restrictions in Chrome 70, but the Chrome team is looking into other options as well. Benji Kay, a developer of web games and audio tools, said: "Simply delaying the enacting of this policy doesn't solve any of the major concerns that have been raised".

The main problem seems to be web-based games, which are being muted by the policy when that's not the idea - at all.

According to browser game developers who spoke with The Daily Dot last week, games built using HTML5 game engines like Pico-8, GameMaker, Unity, and Phaser, were affected. Google has reportedly issued a partial fix. Bleeping Computer has reached out to Google for more details on what actually changed, and a spokesperson pointed us to a comment made by one of the Chrome engineers in a bug report.

As such, version 66.0.3359.181 of Chrome for Mac, Windows, and Linux today removes the autoplay policy for this API. He added that the change wouldn't stop Chrome from silencing most websites' autoplay videos and audio.

Google's Chrome team recently said that it has updated the mobile web browser to temporarily put on hold the autoplay policy for the apps, games, and RTC features using the Web Audio API.

"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", acknowledges Google product manager John Pallett.

Pallett urged developers to prepare for Chrome 70 by following its autoplay instructions for the Web Audio API.
