I have a Chromecast with Google TV. In the past few days, it has been unable to update the app Android System WebView.
I tell it to update. It downloads just fine. It begins the installation, and then gives the extremely unhelpful message, ""Can't install Android System WebView."
I have restarted the Chromecast, uninstalled the existing updates, and restarted yet again. I also cleared the cache. Still no luck.
I have plenty of space on the device: 1.6 Gb.
Another thread advises using developer mode, but it gives no hint as to how to go about using it.
What suggestions do you have for me, please? Perhaps explaining how to enter development mode?
EDIT: After a couple of days, it has mysteriously solved its own problem. I have no idea why.
With AIDA64 from Playstore you can look under System for Board/Device/Platform. 4K is named "sabrina" HD should be "Boreal".
Maybe Playstore cleared some cache to get more free space. I have no idea why it worked for you.
Hey there paddylandau,
I'm glad to hear that! As for the Chromecast auto-installing Disney+ and other apps, go ahead and uninstall the apps you don't want, then afterwards clear out the cached app data on the Google Play app. If the problem persists afterwards, please let me know.
