上月因 WebView 引起的 Gmail、Google Pay、银行 app 等多款软件广泛跳错的问题,还真是给用户带来了不小的困扰。当时 Google 紧急上架了修复更新,时至今日他们终于对成因进行了解释。在新发布的状态报告中,Google 提到是一个 WebView「实验性、配置技术中的臭虫」导致了依赖它打开网页的 app 出现错误。

为了以防未来再给用户造成类似的麻烦,Google 会为 WebView 引入一个新的「安全模式」,它会在遇到问题后将 app 恢复到之前的正常状态。除此之外,Google 还会加快 Play 商店中 Chrome 和 WebView 的更新节奏,并将加强对 app 的审核,以及在出现问题时和使用者进行更多的沟通。对于那些因此事无辜受到用户投诉的商家和开发者,Google 称会与自己的伙伴加紧合作,尽快确定事件影响和解决方案。
