Whataspp not working - Suggest agent ID change.

Alexis 6 months ago • updated by Alexey Fedorov 4 months ago 3

Hello. Whatsapp seesm to be asking to upgrade to chrome, opera, etc. Any of the branded browsers. However, it fails to detect Firework as chromium (and by extension Chrome). Is there a chance to force Firework to change the user agent to Chrome, so that apps can be more compatible? Since you already have the mobile phone agent switch, I am thinking this one is probably a small tweak.

Anyway, thanks in advance.

Answer

We have updated Chrome version at Firework 2.26. Now this problem is completely solved on functionality level, not only browser description.

Hmmm. Great idea. I handed your idea to developers who are working on new Frework engine with new Chromium inside.
