    The problem is to do with a Google Webview bug which popped up a few hours ago.

    Go into the Play Store and check if there is an update for Webview or Chrome.
    If an update of these two apps doesn't fix your problem, you could either wait for a day for Google to make a new Webview version available for your phone or

    Fix until then if an update doesn't work for you:

    Go into the Play Store.
    Search for Android Webview.
    Uninstall its updates.
    Text your mum that you love her.
    Enjoy your working phone. 👍🏻

    P.S. Deactivate 'auto update' in the app store settings until Google/OnePlus fixes this bug.

    Please report back if this has helped you. 😊


    “We are aware of an issue with WebView causing some apps on Android to crash for some users,” Google said in a statement.

    Some Android apps were crashing for some people, but Google has fixed it. The issue was due to a system component called Android System WebView that lets Android apps display web content. Google now has a fix that requires users to update Android System WebView to version 89.0.4389.105 and Google Chrome to the latest version now on available on Google Play.

    The issues began on Monday afternoon and lasted about seven hours, according to the Google Workspace dashboard for Gmail. .
