In most cases, we recommend using a standard web browser, like Chrome, to deliver content to the user. To learn more about web browsers, read the guide on invoking a browser with an intent.
WebView objects allow you to display web content as part of your activity layout, but lack some of the features of fully-developed browsers. A WebView is useful when you need increased control over the UI and advanced configuration options that will allow you to embed web pages in a specially-designed environment for your app.
What is Android System WebView? It is a web browser engine built into an operating system that makes it possible to open web pages within applications. You can view any type of web content with the help of WebView. It is installed on your Android device from the get-go and only needs to be updated if/when required.
This component is based on the WebKit engine. The version which is part of Android KitKat is based on Chromium, which is an open-source web browser. Its working is very similar to that of the Chrome browser. This means it loads web pages the same way Chrome or Safari does.
Additionally, WebView is a vital part of Android Studio, an IDE for developing Android apps. This software allows users with sufficient programming knowledge and skills to create their own browsers, as well as other apps that are similar in format to the newsfeed or messaging apps.
