PowerApps - Offline - Connection.Connected

I have come across a strange issue that i am hoping someone can help me with.


I have implemented connection.connected on a powerapp that should display an offline screen when not connected, this works fine if the device is not connected to wifi or mobile, however I have noticed that my powerapp will report itself as connected even if it is connected to a wifi that has no internet connectivity.


Is there a way to ensure powerapps has to be able to reach the internet before connection.connected will equal true.

Re: PowerApps - Offline - Connection.Connected

Hi @rockonron

The Connection.Connected formula is used to detect if the device is connected to a network (a wifi).

If your device has been connected to a wifi, regardless of whether or not the wifi has Internet connectivity, the Connection.Connected formula would always return true.

Currently, within PowerApps, there is no way to detect if the wifi a device connects to has Internet connectivity.

If you want to ensure powerapps has to be able to reach the Internet before connection.connected will equal true, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
