PowerApps update

Hello everyone, today we released the latest version of PowerApps that has a couple of updates:

Closed Captions in video player

We are in the midst of a large effort to make both the consumption and the creation experience in PowerApps more accessible to users with disabilities.  As part of this effort all controls are being upgraded with features that will make them accessible by keyboard and screen readers and compliant with numerous international standards.  As a result of this, Video control now supports closed

captions in the WebVTT format via the ClosedCaptionsUrl property.

We have improved the error handling and reporting of the PDF viewer control. Also, in case the document cannot be opened in PowerApps, the option to open the document in an external browser is presented to the end user.
