Hexnode browser features (navigator.vibrate)

expand collapsive


Is there a list with all features of the hexnode browser?

I’m building an angular app, displayed in a single tab kiosk. At some time I need to give the operator haptic feedback. Using HTML5’s navigator.vibrate this works fine when using Chrome. The navigator.vibrate always happens a couple of ms after a user interaction (swipe, click,…), so this shouldn’t be the issue.

Switching to Hexnode single tab, this does not work anymore… Same device, same settings (Zebra TC21, Android 13).

Since it’s working on Chrome, my guess is the hexnode browser isn’t capable (yet)?

  • Hello @leeroyjenkins, welcome to Hexnode Connect!

    The Navigator.vibrate() method is supported on the Hexnode Browser. Here are a few things to ensure:

    1. In the Hexnode UEM portal, navigate to Policies > Kiosk Lockdown > Android Kiosk Lockdown > Advanced Website Kiosk Settings > Content > JavaScript and confirm that the Allow JavaScript option is enabled.
    2. Check that your device is not in silent mode.

    Hope this helps!
