Webview works on android 11 device but not android 6.0


I am working on updating a legacy digital signage device which uses android tv 6.0 as its base operating system. The basic use of the app is a webview which displays the signage in full screen.

In this updated iteration, our signage now contains javascript (bootstrap 5 and its dependencies to be specific).

I have gotten the app to work on an emulator running android tv 11, but the webview displays oddly positioned and zoomed in on the older android 6.0 device no matter what I do. Is there anything about android 6.0 which wouldn’t play well with javascript where a newer device would?

Hope this makes sense and I am happy to clarify more if not.
