    Do you have any idea when this function to take photos on a mobile phone will be available?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    The take photo widget will actually work on mobile. However, that depends on the browser you're using. There are mobile browsers that do not have the capability to render the camera in the browser because of the technology required.

    Example, I tested the Take Photo Widget on my Android phone - built in and Chrome browser. This is what I see on the initial load of the form.

    When you allow the camera, it will load after.

    Example:

    However, when the browser does not support the widget, a fallback option will be displayed which is the file upload field. This is to allow users to upload the image manually without interruptions while filling the form.

    Hope this information helps!
