Google’s new Trusted Web Activity capability will offer a way to integrate trusted web content into native Android apps. By launching a Trusted Web Activity, any Android app can directly include “app-like” content served from the app provider’s own site with the benefit of custom tabs but running full-screen, said Dion Almaer, developer relations lead at Google. The capability means up-to-date content, a small on-device footprint, and sharing across websites.
A preview of Trusted Web Activity support will be available soon in Chrome canary and developer channels. Support also will be available in the Android support library, so other browsers can provide the capability as well.
