Google fixes inline video crashing in System WebView.

Android System WebView may not make much sense to you as a end-user, but it is one of these built-in apps you absolutely want to keep updated once an update is made available by Google. Android System WebView is a component that allows Android apps to display web content. Developers use it to add browser functionality to their apps and interact with web pages.

Google has updated WebView with the following fixes:

  • Fixed inline video crash issues.
  • Added workarounds for graphics driver bugs which are causing some devices to hang.
As I mentioned above, go to Google Play Store to update the app, even if this is not a security update. The app page on the store shows it was updated on July 21, but it's only showing up on my Nexus 7 and Moto G today.
