I have Webview installed on my smartphone and have the 8.0 oreo installed also. The Webview sph is frozen and it disabled itself and I can't get it to enable itself. I tried installing the lastest update and it won't even accept its update. I have tried everything I can think of to enable it and it just won't do it. I've tried all 4 chrome browsers to see if it would enable itself and it didn't work. I even tried uninstalling the app and that doesn't work either. Any ideas on how I can get the Webview to enable itself? I can sure use some help on this

Is anyone having trouble debugging the webview with the latest chrome on linux? I get a 404 error.

Hello guys, can you help with this ?

What is the best to use and difference between them ?

newbie here!

Im developing an android application which is using webview. It works well on other android version but when i open it in nougat something goes wrong, it does not load my site. Do i need to add some code in my application for it work in naugat version? Please help..

Is the following assumption correct?

To be able to choose a different webview_provider from settings, you have to explicitly register a certain package with its signature at build time of the Android system image (and have it installed of course). It is not possible to add another provider at runtime.

But, after being logged in google plus account, white page is appearing without allowing to login and comment.
But i'm google O-Auth , then i tested google login, it is working fine, but not the google+ login in the app. I also integrated google plus api.....And still its not working! Help me if anyone had answers!!


Hi, there. I'm considering using a WebView, but want to know how I would be able to test against a specific released version. Let's say I get a bug report in the field that a a certain version is crashing or showing some odd behavior. How do I go about installing that specific version on my phone? I've seen instructions that say I can uninstall an update my phone has received (to put me back at the factory version), but how do I then update to a specific version (assuming I have the relevant apk for the target WebView)? Should a normal 'adb install' work?
