WebXR autofocus on Android


I’m working on something with WebXR on Android, for this I have to put the camera quite close to a surface but it seems like autofocus is not enabled. So it’s all blurry up close, is there a way to enable this?

I’ve faced this issue before when working with Babylon React Native and as far as I know it’s just not really been specified for WebXR.


I am unfortunately pretty sure we do not have this level of control through the WebXR API :frowning:

Totally right. This is device-specific, at least when working in the browser. Maybe @bghgary has some magic he can suggest when using babylon native

No, I’m not aware of anything. :frowning: The referenced thread has all the info from the native side.

Hi all,

Thanks for taking the time to look at this, I’ve added my two cents to this open issue in WebXR Focus control for handheld AR · Issue #1210 · immersive-web/webxr · GitHub
I would suggest anyone else stumbling over this thread and having the same issue to also just add their use-case and thoughts there.
