Google delays Chrome audio update after web game crash

Google has delayed a Chrome audio update after it broke a number of web games.

Web developers took to social media to complain after the update that rolled out Chrome version 66 in May - which was supposed to silence annoying ads - accidentally removed all audio from interactive projects that relied on commands.

Google product manager John Pallett said: "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."

Although it's caused a lot of drama online, Google aren't planning to scrap the update and, instead, fix it and bring it back out with Chrome's version 70 release in October, according to The Verge.
