    We have a web service running that streams PDF content. On iOS, launching it directly via window.open() works fine, and the PDF is rendered in browser. On Android, however, the same method triggers a download to the device. Is there any way around this? What other options are available for displaying streamed PDF?

    Hello Michael,

    It is expected for the file to be downloaded if you are using the _system target for Android devices. This is so, as Android WebView does not have built-in PDF viewer. Thus, you could try using the InAppBrowser functionality instead, by passing _blank as a target. I hope this helps.

    Further, please let me know if the above is not the case and I will try to assist you further.
