    Good day!

    Unity Web Player doesn't start on Windows 10 x64 in Microsoft Edge browser.
    It thinks that it is running in unsupported version of Google Chrome browser (please look at attached screenshot). unsupported-ms-edge.png

    To reproduce it just run any application using Unity Web Player on Windows 10 using Microsoft Edge browser.
    UnityObject will report "unsupported" plugin status.

    Are you planning to fix it anytime soon?

    Thanks in advance.

    Microsoft Edge Is not listed as a compatible browser for the Unity webplayer plugin.
    And since unity is on its way to make Webgl replace the webplayer at some point i would guess that there will not be a webplayer plugin for Microsoft Edge.

    We are planning on fixing the error message.

    We won't be able to do anything about the plugin itself though since Edge doesn't support plugins. You can keep running Firefox to play your Unity Plugin content on Windows 10.

    I'm receiving this error trying to run my WebGL project in Microsoft Edge as well under Windows 10. Did something change under the hood or?

    The webplayer plugin deprecated by us several years ago and it will not come back.
    The plugins new Edge supports are just coming by the way of them using Chromium under hood. They are also not the same kind of plugins the Webplayer was.
