Some users might find the presence of Android System WebView in the installed app list can be a little bit puzzling. WebView is not something that can be used directly. Still, it is a vital component of Android OS that will allow every Android app to view the content directly within the application rather than using third-party apps. A specific web browser may have been installed on an Android phone, but this app is not quite efficient for viewing web content. In order to access these pages, Android will instead use WebView to display web content in the applications.

Android System WebView app review
The Android System WebView for Android does not require the user to actually do something in order to install or execute the program. The app will be automatically enabled by default, and will run in the background. It will run the moment a link is clicked from a particular app that supports this system. While the app is available for any Android user, this app is initially developed to give every app developer convenience.
Users can directly open it up without actually opening YouTube app. If users discover an exciting post while navigating through a social media app like Facebook, they don’t have to get out of the app to view the page. A mini-browser will open up, and users are able to read an article, scroll up and down, zoom in and out, searching a particular text, navigating through history, and so on.
