Some Android Phones Experience Constant App Crashes: Here Is A Simple Solution

VS 1

Android smartphones appear to be plagued by a vexing bug that causes their apps to crash on a regular basis. According to a Reddit post, the issue appears to be primarily affecting some of the best Samsung phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S21. The issue appears to be linked to the Android System Webview, which comes preinstalled on Android phones and is what apps like in-app web browsers use to display web content.

According to a Google representative (via 9to5Google), the company is working to resolve the issue:

We are aware of an issue with WebView causing some apps on Android to crash. We are currently working to fully validate the scope and a fix is in progress.

Meanwhile, anyone who is experiencing the issue, whether on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or not, is advised to uninstall Android System WebView updates. This can be accomplished by searching for it in the Play Store (or clicking the link) and choosing “uninstall,” which should resolve the issue. If that option isn’t available for whatever reason, you can do the same thing with your device’s settings.

If you have a Samsung Galaxy smartphone, go to Settings > Apps > Android System WebView, then click the three-dot menu near the top of the page and choose to uninstall updates, validate, and reboot your device. The procedure is similar to any other Android smartphone. If the Android System Webview doesn’t appear on the first try, make sure you’re watching “all apps,” and it should appear.

It should be noted that you are simply uninstalling the updates, and you should not disable Android System WebView, as this may cause issues with other apps. If this does not work, you may need to uninstall Chrome browser updates on your device because the apps are upgraded together, but this may only apply to devices running Android lower than Android 10.
