You might have come across this issue where android webView input fields do not reveal a soft keyboard on focusing. I actually faced the same problem where when I tapped an input field or textarea inside a webView, the soft keyboard did not show up
Software keyboard not showing on a input field/ textarea focus inside webview
To solve this problem, I added these codes of lines inside the webView root tag on the XML layout file.
At the end of the day, your webView tag should look like this:
<WebView android:focusable="true" android:focusableInTouchMode="true" android:id="@+id/webView" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" />
