What about async functions?

I use game lab. I have been using it for almost 2 years and I recently realized that there is a javascript feature that isnt in game lab (if that makes sense). Its async functions. Like, am I doing something wrong? Because when I type:
async function helloworld() {
console.log(“Hello World!”)
}
it says “‘async’ hasn’t been declared yet.” Game lab’s coding language is javascript so I wouldn’t see why async functions wont work. When i try to use async functions on Visual Studio Code, it works.
If anyone knows how to use async functions in game lab, please help lol

@MonsterYT_ALT,

Game Lab was built on the ES5 version of Javascript. Async functions weren’t a part of Javascript until ES8, so that’s why they don’t work.

Good luck!

Mike
