[SOLVED] How to enable mobile browser in jitsi-meet

@Joan here is the file, let’s see if it accept it so big

app.bundle.min.js.txt (2.8 MB)

good, seems to accept it

Pretty sure this is what you are looking for:

function i(){return"android"===r.a.OS||“ios”===r.a.OS}

so how should I change it?

Plus… how to make this change have effects? Because I had notice that nothing chages when I for example change a language page

If you want all devices to work as desktop web pages…
function i(){return false; return"android"===r.a.OS||“ios”===r.a.OS}
The function will always return false and so the device will never be detected as Android or iOS.
This change should take effect immediately unless your server has some kind of cache… in that case I cannot help you in a forum.


@Joan thanks man! it worked!!!

#solution thanks to @Joan

change in /usr/share/jitsi-meet/libs/app.bundle.min.js

  • from:

function i(){return"android"===r.a.OS||“ios”===r.a.OS}

  • to:

function i(){return false; return"android"===r.a.OS||“ios”===r.a.OS}

To easily find the part of code search for:



No luck here

docker exec -it docker ps | grep web | awk '{print $1}' bin/bash

sed -r -i.bak ‘s/(return"android")/return false;\1/g’ /usr/share/jitsi-meet/libs/app.bundle.min.js

…}function ve(){return false;return"android"===fe.Platform.OS||“ios”===fe.Platform.OS}…

@operat0r unfortunately I didn’t used the docker image, you should install it by apt or install it manually from sources.

I’m not familiar with docker, in worst I think you should recompile the docker image after the edit.

Still working on this ill update post if I sort it out:


Remember that everytime you update jitsi, that file is updated, I think it’s a lot better if you fork from source and build with your modification.

@damencho why don’t you add a feature editable directly from main settings?
I think that client app must be advised but not forced.
Specially in a moment where PWA are arising on popularity

Hello RubensRainelli,

I’m also trying to get it to work in the browser, i just installed JitSi YESTERDAY on my own server using APT, but when i try to use it from phone it forces me to get the app, but i want it to work in the phone browser WITHOUT downloading the app.

Can you please tell me how you did it?


In android browser jitsi-meet is working, but in iPhone browser it is not working(not able to turn on audio and video)
When i am click on video icon, it showing “failed to access your camera”

Follow thisn and love it xD

Check browser permission in iPhone’s privacy settings

Jitsi meet is running on docker

Installed https://github.com/jitsi/docker-jitsi-meet

Jitsi meet is not working in iPhone chrome browser


I don’t know how to help you. I don’t use docker

See the most recent comments on the link, I believe this would be the appropriate solution.

Thanks for the quick fix but the chatbox button is disappeared & when we will rotate the phone screen then it’s reaper!

any idea how we can hide “screen sharing” and show the “chat” button in mobile browser users with building or deploying the whole app from reacting source code?

I have no idea :pensive:

My Jitsi installation disconnects every time I enter with a cell phone.
Has anyone else had this problem?

Jitsi by default has dsabled mobile. New versions has a new way to enable them
