A lot of you may have noticed that a lot of apps open URLs within the app and not in any browser. Well, in case you don’t know, this functionality is provided by a system component called Android WebView. This component is powered by Chrome and lets Android apps show web content.
Android WebView comes installed in Android devices and is a very important component. It is updated regularly to fix bugs and security issues, so you must make sure that you install latest Android WebView APK versions regularly.

The new Android WebView update now supports unprefixed EME API and ES6 computer property names. Also, it has resolved crashes in those apps that use WebView with an Application context. Also, the component now performs better on devices like Nexus 9 that have the Tegra K1 GPUs.
