A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, Faces, and Barcodes—The Shape Detection API

The Shape Detection API allows for faces, barcodes, and text to be detected in images.

Check If Your Native App Is Installed With getInstalledRelatedApps

As the capability gap between web and native gets smaller, it becomes easier to offer the same experience for both web and native users. This may lead to cases where users have both the web and native versions installed on the same device. Apps should be able to detect this situation. The getInstalledRelatedApps API is a new web platform API that allows your web app to check to see if your native app is installed on the users device, and vice versa.

Deprecations and removals in Chrome 72

A round up of the deprecations and removals in Chrome 72 to help you plan.

I’m Awake! Stay Awake with the WakeLock API

To avoid draining the battery, most devices will quickly fall asleep when left idle. While this is fine for most of the time, there are some applications that need to keep the screen or the device awake in order to complete some work. The Wake Lock API provides a way to prevent the device from dimming or locking the screen or prevent the device from going to sleep when an application needs to keep running.

The Intl.ListFormat API

The `Intl.ListFormat` API enables localized formatting of lists without sacrificing performance.

Public and private class fields

Several proposals expand the existing JavaScript class syntax with new functionality. This article explains the new public class fields syntax in V8 v7.2 and Chrome 72, as well as the upcoming private class fields syntax.

Badging for App Icons

The Badging API is a new web platform API that allows installed web apps to set an application-wide badge, shown in an operating-system-specific place associated with the application, such as the shelf or home screen. Badging makes it easy to subtly notify the user that there is some new activity that might require their attention, or it can be used to indicate a small amount of information, such as an unread count.
