I'll be a bit more direct than Izzy: you appear to be completely unqualified for a moderation position. You have no demonstrable relevant experience. Your platform of "I'd just like to see what's going on in the mod tools" borders on a joke/trolling. I cannot conceive of any reason to vote for you. I would strongly urge other voters to support a different candidate.

I'm not sure if this varies by device, but the Moto 360, for example, supports notifications via WiFi.

comment Android system Webview installed but not used by apps
@AaronGillion I'm not sure. My guess would be that it will hinge mostly on whether or not Google's WebView uses APIs that were introduced in 5.0. If not, then you might have a shot at getting it work, but if it does then it'll crash.

comment Android system Webview installed but not used by apps
@Clémentine Google's control over third-party manufacturers is somewhat limited. They probably could opt to use Google's closed-source WebView just as Nexus devices do, but they may choose not to for whatever reason. I'm not sure of the specifics regarding how Google licenses their closed-source applications to OEMs, but those terms (whatever they may be) could be a factor in the manufacturer's decision.

@Clémentine Nexus devices (possibly others) ship with it pre-installed, and configured to use it. It is, in effect, the system WebView for those devices.Thus, Google is able to provide WebView updates for these devices via the Play Store so that full system OTAs are not necessary just to update the browser/WebView. There are other components that Google has migrated to Play Store updating in a similar fashion, with the reasoning essentially being that it is faster.
