    I am trying to load a Webview from my Wix.com site where an Instagram feed is. The feed itself is not shown when i load the app and the navigation bar within the webview can´t be used.

    Hi sir, I'm doing a webview application. I have a problem: "Adsense ads appear when using Chrome custom tabs, but adsense ads don't appear when using regular webview."
    In normal webview, how are ads allowed?
