If you want to build a web view application then you are at the right place. Just follow the steps below and create your application easily. In this blog, I will teach you how you can easily build your application with Android Studio and publish it at Google Play Store.

Introduction

If you want to deliver a web application (or just a web page) as a part of a client application, you can do it using WebView. The WebView class is an extension of Android’s View the class that allows you to display web pages as a part of your activity layout. It does not include any features of a fully developed web browser, such as navigation controls or an address bar. All that WebView does, by default, is show a web page.

A common scenario in which using WebView is helpful is when you want to provide information in your app that you might need to update, such as an end-user agreement or a user guide. Within your Android app, you can create an Activity that contains a WebView, then use that to display your document that’s hosted online.

Another scenario in which WebView can help is if your app provides data to the user that always requires an Internet connection to retrieve data, such as email. In this case, you might find that it’s easier to build a WebView in your Android app that shows a web page with all the user data, rather than performing a network request, then parsing the data and rendering it in an Android layout. Instead, you can design a web page that’s tailored for Android devices and then implement a WebView in your Android app that loads the web page.

This document shows you how to get started with WebView and how to do some additional things, such as handle page navigation and bind JavaScript from your web page to client-side code in your Android app.

Open the Main_Activity.XML File and paste the code below

<WebView
    android:id="@+id/webview"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
/>
