We’ve landed a CL that changes the behavior of getUserMedia in Chromium such that it will wait to resolve until the document calling it has focus. This brings us into compliance with the Media Capture and Streams specification (step 6.1)

https://crrev.com/c/3107186


To force enable the feature in Chrome, use the command line flag --enable-features="UserMediaCaptureOnFocus". This feature will be enabled shortly for some users on Canary and then gradually rolled out to Beta and Stable over the coming weeks. Please report any issues at the bug tracker: https://crbug.com/1250332

Is the GUMFocusStudy field trial (which doesn't show up in Chromium codesearch) related to this?
