Just a few weeks ago, Google released its WebView app to the Play Store, though it was only in beta upon its arrival. But if you own a Lollipop device and visited the Play Store yesterday, you may have noticed that the WebView app is now installed on your device. That’s because Google has removed the beta tag from the app, and sent it to all Lollipop devices.
WebView is a tool developers use to allow their apps to render webpages, without the need to open the content in an external browser. Now with Google adding it directly to the Play Store, much like many of its other apps, Google can send important performance fixes to the app without the need to wait for the next system update to roll out. WebView is only available for devices running Lollipop, so hopefully your device will get the update to 5.0 sooner rather than later.
If you’re interested, you can check out the Play Store link below for more information on the app, but for those folks with Lollipop devices, the app should already be installed on your device.
