Introducing the Web Share API | Web | Google Developers

We can try switching the topic share icon action to the web share intent on supported platforms ( Chrome android for now)

Ok, did a quick try at this while I was in the plane and after some cleaning up sent a pull request.

Here is it in action:


Share a webpage link in mobile app?
[PAID] Adding whatsapp share feature

This only happens on Android yes? Seems fairly safe to me then. @gerhard can you review?

It’s merged and it works great on Chrome 61. :+1:

I don’t have an android device to test, but I’m assuming this means users no longer have access to the “reply as linked topic” button that is normally next to the share buttons?

Can this functionality be put elsewhere? Or is there any way to add a custom button to the native share sheet?

It’s still there when you tap on the post’s time.

Only the share button uses the new functionality.
