In addition, Microsoft Edge team engineers are working on other solutions and hope to eventually get Chrome's power consumption issues.
Of course, this requires the collaboration of the Chrome team to enable larger hardware audio buffers on Windows 10 to improve energy efficiency and extend battery life.
The current Chrome uses a smaller buffer for the audio service, and does not hand this part of the load to the hardware for processing, resulting in high CPU usage and the device's inability to maintain a long low power state.
Microsoft said that on supported hardware platforms, this feature allows HTML media elements on Windows devices to prevent Chromium from consuming too much power.
The company will also limit scenarios that adversely affect media playback, and its audio processing experience is expected to outperform existing solutions. Based on field testing, the solution can reduce power consumption by an average of 150mW.
It is reported that William Carr of the Microsoft engineering team has already studied this. The most recent submission was completed on August 8.
If all goes well, Chromium Edge users will soon be greeted with the audio offloading support and enabled with the relevant tags.
