Since last week, Brave has been getting recognized as a game by some android OS like oneplus and xiaomi. This means that the brave icon and widgets disappear unless the option to not hide games icons is selected. This makes brave icon and widgets appear as normal but other game icons too
How can this issue be reproduced?
Wait a couple of minutes and it will be picked up as a game
Brave is not recognized as a game
Brave Version( check About Brave):
Brave 1.40.113, Chromium 103.0.5060.114
Mobile Device details
I have a oneplus 9 pro but also heard of oneplus nord and other xiaomi phones with the same problem
It is likely from oneplus/xiaomi and not from brave.
It is quite odd and should not have happened since brave is based on chromium, so it should be recognized not as a game just like chrome and xiaomi own chromium browser.
If it is really bugging you, contact oneplus/xiaomi devs and ask them to make changes in their own code.
Do not format. It’s a Chinese phone problems. This problem has been occuring only on Chinese phones from the past few cases that I’ve encountered. Just remove Brave from the game area and it’ll operate as usual.
