Other developers have suggested methods for stopping auto-playing audio that would be less disruptive to legacy interactive content, such as automatically muting new tabs or warning the user and offering options when a page first attempts to play audio. Web game developers will need to find ways to update their code by Chrome update 70 at latest.

It has partially rolled back Chrome's recent policy of blocking videos that autoplay with sound, because the web browser was unintentionally preventing some web games from working properly.

GOOGLE HAS been forced to roll back its new autoplay policy for web video in Chrome after it became apparent that it was borking legitimate content.

The developer community has made their frustrations clear and the hiccup has found its way to the CRBug tracker and the folks at Chromium have taken notice.

WebRTC applications are also affected by a range of issues caused by Chrome 66's autoplay policy, including no longer playing an incoming call sound, broken audio visualizers, and no sound coming from remote peers.

Shenmue III delayed to 2019, act surprised
We first heard of Shenmue 3 was back in 2015, when Deep Silver launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the title. So any extra time that can be used to deliver the best quality game is a positive, in my eyes.

Google's auto mute system learns from user behavior to mute audio on sites where they don't want it, and maintain it on sites where they do.

Google released yesterday a Chrome update that temporarily fixed a bug that broke millions of web-based games, some of which couldn't play audio at all, despite whatever tricks and configs users tried. "This change does not affect most media playback on the web, as the autoplay policy will remain in effect for video and audio ," he wrote.

Pallet admitted, "We didn't do a good job of communicating the impact of the new autoplay policy to developers using the Web Audio API".

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. But the browser maker says it plans to reimplement the feature in October, a move that has failed to satisfy many Web-based developers. Unless web developers scramble to use the Web Audio API instead of those tags, Chrome should continue to save your ears from unwanted and potentially obnoxious noises while you browse.
