Android 15 may speed up webpages loading for apps
Android 15 is the upcoming major update, which will bring new features and some significant improvements over the current version. One of the changes that Android 15 could introduce is the ability to pin Android System WebView into memory, which could speed up the browsing experience.
Android System WebView is a part that allows apps to display web content without opening a separate browser app. Many apps use WebView to access various features, such as showing login screens, help pages, or full articles.
WebView is based on the same code as Google Chrome, but it is updated separately. To save space on the device, Google created a shared library called Trichrome.
According to information (via AndroidPolice), Google may pin the base APK of the trichrome library to memory with Android 15, which means it will not be removed from memory when the user opens a big-size app. This could reduce the loading time of web pages and make the browsing experience smoother.
The feature is currently enabled in Android 15 Developer Preview 1, but it may change or be removed in future versions. Android 15 is expected to be released later this year, with new features and improvements for Android users.
Google temporarily stops Android 15 DP1 downloads amid device corruption bug
Last week, Google rolled out the first developer preview of its next version operating system – Android 15, and the firm now temporarily stopped DP1 downloads amid a device corruption bug. However, this news may disappoint users who were all set to try the new offerings.
According to the details, Google states on its Android Developers page that we’ve temporarily disabled downloads for Android 15 DP1 OTA images. The reason for this abrupt pause happens to be a known issue that shows a Device is corrupted message, which occurs when sideloading OTA images.
However, an issue with sideloading the Developer Preview 1 build can sometimes cause users in trouble, so to maintain reliability, Google pauses the downloads of Android 15 first developer preview until the firm can further troubleshoot the issue.
To work around this issue, Google recommends developers flash a factory image to test devices instead. Simultaneously, this news primarily impacts developers, as this is an early build, and probably not even that much since developers would probably end up flashing their devices anyway.
However, currently, there’s no information available on when the issue will be resolved and downloads will resume, so all you can do is wait, because it’s better to be late than corrupted.
