Was having issues with this updating on my chromebook. It just wouldn't update. Then, I cleaned out the storage and cache files within the Play Store app. Shut down chromebook. Restarted chromebook and then the Android System WebView updated and installed. I am adding this comment in case anyone else encounters the same issue. This is how I resolved this app not updating. Hope it helps you out.

The app doesn't cause your connection to stop, it's the amount of ram you're using. Close multiple tabs on tab bar and run device care. Clear ram, optimize, and that will stop crashes. You don't have to restart your phone to get your connection back, put your phone on airplane mode for 30 seconds and then turn it off, your phone will automatically reconnect at a faster speed. Check what apps you've got running in the background and deny permission to run in the background unless it's necessary.

It's a required app, it basically allows internet access to all the Android apps. Without it, Android apps would fail to collect to the internet. Regarding the app updates, I didn't notice any benefit from updating. As a matter of fact, it seems like the updates make the phone and apps run a little slower and freeze sometimes. Plus, it uses up more storage space. But I assume it helps increase security I suppose. Though I had better experience using the factory version of this app.
