Android-Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: webenginewidgets



  • QtWebEngine - Android-Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: webenginewidgets

    I built a Qt 5 application project on Android including webenginewidgets module. But I got a error as follows.

    /Qt/5.13.1/android_arm64_v8a/bin/qmake -o Makefile ../videoplayer/videoplayer.pro -spec android-clang CONFIG+=qtquickcompiler
    Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: webenginewidgets
    

    Refer to https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/android.html

    It says "Qt for Android enables you to run Qt 5 applications Android devices. All Qt modules (essential and add-on) are supported except Qt WebEngine."

    But on Qt maintenance Tool it only indicates that webengine component, "On Windows, the module is only available under MSVC 2017".

    I want to build a Qt 5 application project on Android including webenginewidgets module.
    Is there any other method? Or Will Qt support webenginewidgets module in the future version?

    Hi, and welcome.

    @shelley said in Android-Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: webenginewidgets:

    Qt support webenginewidgets module in the future version?

    This is not possible.

    Google (Android's developers) do not allow apps that use external web engines.

    You can only use the Qt WebView module: https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtwebview-index.html



  • Hi JKSH,

    I'll try as per what you suggested.

    Thank you very much!
