unity-webview is a plugin for Unity 5 that overlays WebView components on Unity view. It works on Android, iOS, Unity Web Player, and Mac (Windows is not supported for now).

unity-webview is derived from keijiro-san's .

Sample Project

It is placed under sample/. You can open it and import the plugin as below:

  1. Open sample/Assets/Sample.unity.
  2. Open dist/unity-webview.unitypackage and import all files. It might be easier to extract dist/ instead if you've imported unity-webview before.

Platform Specific Notes

Mac (Editor)

Auto Graphics API

The current implementation reiles on several OpenGL APIs so you need to disable "Auto graphics API" and specify OpenGLCore as below.


App Transport Security

Since Unity 5.3.0, is built with ATS (App Transport Security) enabled and non-secured connection (HTTP) is not permitted. If you want to open http://foo/bar.html with this plugin on Unity Mac Editor, you need to open /Applications/Unity5.3.4p3/ with a text editor and add the following,

--- Info.plist~	2016-04-11 18:29:25.000000000 +0900
+++ Info.plist	2016-04-15 16:17:28.000000000 +0900
@@ -57,5 +57,10 @@
+	<key>NSAppTransportSecurity</key>
+	<dict>
+		<key>NSAllowsArbitraryLoads</key>
+		<true/>
+	</dict>

or invoke the following from your terminal,

/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Add NSAppTransportSecurity:NSAllowsArbitraryLoads bool true" /Applications/Unity/


WebViewSeparated.bundle is a variation of WebView.bundle. It is based on . As noted in the pull-request, it shows a separate window and allows a developer to utilize the Safari debugger. For enabling it, please define WEBVIEW_SEPARATED.


The implementation now supports WKWebView but it is disabled by default. For enabling it, please set enableWKWebView as below:

        webViewObject = (new GameObject("WebViewObject")).AddComponent<WebViewObject>();
            enableWKWebView: true);


Please also note that this flag have no effect on platforms without WKWebView (such as iOS7 and Android).



The main activity should have android:hardwareAccelerated="true", otherwise a webview won't run smoothly. Depending on unity versions, we need to set it as below (basically this will be done by post-process build scripts).

Unity 2018.1 or newer

Based on the technique discussed in and, Assets/Plugins/Editor/UnityWebViewPostprocessBuild.cs edit the manifest to set android:hardwareAccelerated="true". Please note this works with the gradle (not internal) build setting.

Unity 2018.0 or older

After the initial build, Assets/Plugins/Editor/UnityWebViewPostprocessBuild.cs will copy sample/Temp/StatingArea/AndroidManifest-main.xml to sample/Assets/Plugins/Android/AndroidManifest.xml, edit the latter to add android:hardwareAccelerated="true" to <activity android:name="com.unity3d.player.UnityPlayerActivity" .... Then you need to build the app again to reflect this change.

NOTE: Unity 5.6.1p4 or newer (including 2017 1.0) seems to fix the following issue. cf.

For Unity 5.6.0 and 5.6.1 (except 5.6.1p4), you also need to modify android:name from com.unity3d.player.UnityPlayerActivity to net.gree.unitywebview.CUnityPlayerActivity. This custom activity implementation will adjust Unity's SurfaceView z order. Please refer plugins/Android/src/net/gree/unitywebview/ and plugins/Android/src/net/gree/unitywebview/ if you already have your own activity implementation.

How to build WebViewPlugin.jar

The following steps are for Mac but you can follow similar ones for Windows.

  1. Install Android Studio.
  2. Open Android Studio and select "Configure/SDK Manager", select the followings with "Show Package Details", and click OK.
  • SDK Platforms
    • Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)
      • Android SDK Platform 23
  • SDK Tools
    • Android SDK Build Tools
      • 28.0.2
  1. Open and perform the followings. You should find unity-webview/build/Packager/Assets/Plugins/Android/WebViewPlugin.jar if successful.
$ export ANDROID_HOME=~/Library/Android/sdk
$ export PATH=$PATH:~/Library/Android/sdk/platform-tools/bin:~/Library/Android/sdk/tools:~/Library/Android/sdk/tools/bin
$ cd unity-webview/plugins/Android
$ ./

Web Player

The implementation utilizes IFRAME so please put both "an_unityplayer_page.html" and "a_page_loaded_in_webview.html" should be placed on the same domain for avoiding cross-domain requests.
