Google Chrome 87 Released, Adds Pan/Tilt/Zoom Support for Camera

Browser News

Chrome 87 was released on 17th November, 2020. Major web platform updates in this version include :

  • Pan / Tilt / Zoom support for webcams has been added. This will enable programmatic controlling of panning / tilting / zooming for webcams that support these features.

    const stream = await navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({video: {pan: true, tilt: true, zoom: true}});
  • Font Access API has been added as an origin trial. This API will enable a site to query fonts available on the user's system, and use them.

    A useful implementation of this API can be imagined in an "Image Editor" application, where the user can use all fonts available on his system, rather than the fonts hardcoded in the application itself.

  • Several new values for CSS text-decoration property have been implemented.
  • And more.
