How to Android WebView Opens links in browser instead of app?

Every time I click on a link in the webview, it takes me out of the webview and into a separate browser window. How do I get all the links to open in the webview?

You need to implement setWebViewClient(....) like so.

webView.setWebViewClient(new WebViewClient() {
 
@Override
public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String url) {
        view.loadUrl(url);
        return true;
        }
});
