Microsoft adds Media Capture API support to Microsoft Edge


Microsoft recently introduced Microsoft Edge, previously known as Project Spartan. The browser will replace Internet Explorer on Windows 10, and includes a bunch of new features. For those who don’t know, Internet Explorer won’t be the default web browser on Windows 10 – Edge will be the default browser on Windows 10. Nonetheless, Edge does introduce a handful of new things, such as Cortana integration, a new rendering engine and much more.

As you may expect, Microsoft is adding new API support to Edge to avoid any complains form web developers. One of the latest addition to Edge is Media Capture API support – which is indeed a great addition to the browser. For those unfamiliar, Media Capture API lets websites record your camera/webcam. For example, if you visit a site that needs access to your webcam, Edge will ask for permission and then, the site will be able to use your webcam.

If you’re a web developer, make sure to head over to this announcement post to know more about Media Capture API support on Microsoft Edge.
