Android WebView version?


I was wondering whether Xibo for Android uses the OS’s WebView for HTML stuff or whether it has it embedded. I attempted updating Android WebView to Chrome version 62 in order to support CSS Grid but it didn’t seem to work.

Is there any way of having Xibo for Android pick a particular or more modern version of the Chrome binary?


Yes, XfA does use chrome webview and should be using the version of it that’s installed and provided by android - so if you update the webview version then I believe XfA should use that.

62 is quite recent (at least the stable release), I’m not sure if one of my devices has it already or not, but I’ll check.

If there is any particular layout that you’d like us to test as well, feel free to send it to me over private message.
