WebView developer documentation

Shortlink: http://go/webview-docs

This directory contains developer documentation for Android WebView.

*** promo Googlers may wish to consult http://go/clank-webview for Google-specific developer guides.


Please see the markdown files in this directory for detailed developer guides.

What is Android WebView?

Android WebView is an Android system component for displaying web content. This (and the related Android classes) are implemented by the code in the //android_webview/ folder.

Android WebView is a content embedder, meaning it depends on code in //content/ and lower layers (ex. //net/, //base/), but does not depend on sibling layers such as //chrome/.

Want to use WebView in an Android app?

Please consult https://developer.android.com/reference/android/webkit/WebView, and the related classes in the android.webkit package. You may also be interested in our androidx.webkit API documentation.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
