Gamemaker Android - launch a browser

Hey everybody.

I want to have a button in my game that when a person clicks it, a browser/website is launched.
open_url() and related functions work in windows but in android I get nada, zip, squat, buggerall. No errors or anything.
Is it possible to launch a browser from an Android gamemaker game?


  • How are you testing it?

    I had issues where in my test build (launching the game from gamemaker, and my phone being plugged into the PC) wouldn't launch the browser.

    When I compiled the APK, it somehow worked fine?
    Thanked by 1pieter
  • I am compiling and running on my phone. Your answer is heartening though, it could just be the android version on my phone. I will test on another device. Thank ye sir!
