If you've found yourself unable to use some of the apps that you frequently open on your Android phone because they kept crashing, you are not alone


If you’ve found yourself unable to use some of the apps that you frequently open on your Android phone because they kept crashing, you are not alone.

Many Pixel and Samsung phone users found that apps like Gmail and others were not functional all of a sudden on Monday afternoon.

It turned out that all apps that could display web content in a browser were impacted.

But the good news is that the entire thing can be fixed with ease.

A previous Android System WebView update contained a bug that caused the crashes.

Google fixed the issue a few hours after being discovered.

But there’s also a manual fix that you should keep in mind if this sort of error reappears.

Android users discovered that their phones would display prompts about apps that keep closing, and all apps were affected, including applications in the background.

Some of the impacted users found that uninstalling Android System WebView from their devices would immediately fix the issue, although a reboot was still required.

That’s the app that allows other apps to display web content.

WebView is updated regularly, together with Chrome, and a recent update contained a bug that caused the crashes.

“We are aware of an issue with WebView causing some apps on Android to crash,” a Google spokeswoman said, via 9to5Google.

“We are currently working to fully validate the scope, and a fix is in progress.”

Samsung support recommended that users delete the Android System WebView, and restart the phone to fix the problem.

That was only the temporary fix, as removing WebView from a phone would cripple the functionality of many apps that need it to load website content.

Late on Monday, Google issued a permanent fix for the problem.

Google released new Android System WebView and Chrome updates, which you should install right away — the Chrome version you’re looking for is 89.0.4389.105.

If you’ve removed WebView while waiting for Google to fix the bug from the previous app version, you should reinstall it as well to restore full functionality to your device.

It’s important to have all apps updated to the latest versions, including Chrome and WebView, as the latest versions also deliver the latest security fixes.

While Google patched the bug, you should still know what to do in case you encounter a similar situation in the future.

Removing Android System WebView manually can be done in a few simple steps.

You’ll have to head to the Google Play Store, then go to My apps & games, select the Installed tab and look for Android System WebView.

Tap Uninstall and confirm.

Once that’s done, reboot the device.

That said, deleting WebView won’t always fix problems with crashing apps, unless it’s the WebView component that’s crashing them.

A recent update to Android System WebView has left Android users without access to key apps, such as Gmail and Google Chrome.

Do your Android apps keep crashing? Users across the globe have been reporting similar issues over the past couple of days.

Those with Samsung phones seem to be particularly affected, especially those with recent versions such as the Galaxy S20 and S21 and A50 and A70 series, according to Android Police.

But there have also been complaints from Pixel, Motorola and OnePlus users, it says.

Reddit users said that certain apps, including Gmail and Google Pay, were refusing to open or “instantly crashing”.

Just after midnight in the US this morning, there were 970 Gmail outages reported on DownDetector.

Since then, Google has stated that the latest update to Android System WebView was at fault.

According to Android Police, the feature allows apps to render webpages on Google Chrome without exiting or shutting down.

Google users have been advised to update their Android System WebView and Google Chrome browsers to fix the issue.

Speaking to the BBC, Google said: “We have resolved the issue with WebView that caused some apps on Android to crash for some users.

Updating Android System WebView and Google Chrome via Google Play should now resolve the issue.”

To do so, users need to open the Play Store app, search for Android System WebView and select ‘update’.

This process can then be repeated for Google Chrome.

Users can also download the update directly from APK Mirror.

Prior to Google’s official fix, users were circulating an unofficial temporary solution for the issue that might come in handy if your Google Play app is also crashing.

The method involves going to the main Android settings, opening ‘Apps & Notifications’ (or just ‘Notifications’ on some phones) and looking for Android System WebView.

If Android System WebView isn’t visible, tap the three-dot menu and clicking ‘show system apps’.

Users shouldn’t disable the app, but instead click on the three-dot menu at the top right of this screen and select ‘uninstall updates’.

Next, tap ‘OK’ on the pop-up warning and it should be sorted.

If it’s not, reboot your phone and check again.

However, it should be noted that as an unofficial fix, this method won’t be permanent.

Hi! Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Please remove the Webview Update and then restart the phone.

Here are the steps: Go settings > apps > tap the three dots in the top right corner > show system apps > search for Android System WebView > select Uninstall updates.
