Does the Web SDK work in WebViews of other apps?

Unfortunately, the Web SDK does not work in Webviews of apps such as Facebook, LinkedIn, native SMS app on Android, Twitter or WeChat.  The Web SDK relies on a number of components such as WebAssembly, getUserMedia and others that are not available in these WebViews.

If you plan to share your web app via these networks, and need the user to be able to access scanning functionality, we recommend detecting the WebView and showing the UI to guide the user open the URL in a native browser.
