Saving images in WebView?

I have a webview component in my app, and when I navigate to a webpage with an image, I hold on the image to bring up the action menu, and select "Save." Then I select the location to save it to, but it never actually downloads the image.


However, if I open the same page in the browser, and hold on the image, I see a slightly different action menu. Now it shows "Save Image" and "Copy Image Link" and "View Image." I select save, pick the location, and it downloads successfully and shows download progress.


Is there a setting or configuration needed for the WebView to allow saving images?
