Since Android 7, Chrome has taken over the function of WebView implementation. WebView Android Service is still installed but kept inactive and will automatically get activated when you uninstall or disable Chrome.


updating the topic title here since this seems to be device specific.

I see that the name of the topic is changed! OK. With @domhnallohanlon we have a discussion on the topic of the web viewer. Unfortunately, it fails to recreate the crash that we have been discussing for a long time, that this component causes for Android 9 and higher versions. I am attaching a link to a project and I will ask everyone to take a test and share the result.

This is happening on my android 9

I ran the test project and yes it should fail because the Web Viewer visible is set to FALSE. When I switch it to TRUE it works.
