Pixel 7 Android WebView and Google Play system not updating


Google recently launched the Pixel 7 series with two variants, advanced camera and long battery life.

The new smartphones are powered by a new Tensor G2 chip and include multiple software improvements.

They also have a built-in Android WebView component like other Pixel models that display web pages within an app.

Android Webview and Google Play system update

However, many Google Pixel 7 users are reporting a problem that their Android Webview and Google Play system are not updating.

Even though the security setting throws a warning that the frameworks are outdated and need updating, users don’t really find any.

Apparently Google Play system update and Android web view seems to be stuck in July 2022 and update installation fails every time when prompted.

On my new Pixel 7, the Google Play system update is stuck in July 2022. Is there a procedure to update it?

Pixel 7: I configured by transfer from 6a with cable. Updated all apps and OS, but Android System WebView will not complete its update. It fails every time and I tried the usual fixes eg. resets, clearing cache, uninstalling and reinstalling, etc.

Users tried clearing the cache to trigger an update for Google Play, but to no avail. Also Android WebView framework is not updated even after uninstalling and reinstalling.

Potential workaround
