Hello gameDNA studio,

I was able to reproduce this on our end. I have written up a report and I have submitted it to the developers for further consideration. I have provided a link to the public tracker. Please feel free to use the link provided for further consideration.

Link: Unreal Engine Issues and Bug Tracker (UE-47656)

Make it a great day

Affected version is 4.17 Preview (not 4.16.2 as is written on tracker).

I tested the issue in an older version of the engine (4.16.2) and it reproduced there as well.

I reproduced the issue on 4.16.3 on Android. The bug on the tracker specify iOS.

I run into the same issue with 4.18.3 on android.
However, this is a little confusing, because my android game jewel snake

was made in 4.18.1 or 4.18.2 and the webbrowser plugin works just fine there.
What might cause this issue?
