Q: Do we plan to auto-update Android's Chrome-based WebView?

A: Evergreen browsers (like Chrome and Firefox) auto-update and keep their users up to date so they can view the web through a modern feature set. As a developer, this ensures your choices aren’t limited to a lowest-common denominator browser from years ago, but rather are keeping pace with the modern web. Your apps inside a WebView are just as important and deserve a runtime that keeps users up to date. There are large engineering and logistical challenges, but we're not quite there yet and are working on it.
