    Several users are reporting a sudden phenomenon of app crash since yesterday.

    It appears that Google has derped and the issue is due to the system component called Android System Webview.

    The possible solution is as follows -
    1. Uninstall the Android System Webview from the play store. Here is the link https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.webview
    2. Go to systems > Apps & Notifications > See all Apps > Android System Webview > tap three dot in the top right > Uninstall updates> Ok
    This is an immediate workaround. Google has confirmed that they are working to fix this.

    Edit - Google seems to be rolling out a new version of Android System Webview 89.0.4389. Please keep an eye to update if available, if not you will get soon as it is a stagged roll out.



    Hope this helps.

    Cheers.

    Yes. But how many will not notice and post away like crazy anyway? 😜 The very same question posted everywhere around you is somehow gone unnoticed anyway

    Indeed. That is the very reason I created a specific thread even though solution exists. Not sure if this will be pinned, but I guess atleast if 10% of the user see this we will be left with 90% to deal with ahaaha

    Can all these threads be merged here? The only thing I am seeing on the forum now is "App Crashes". It will help clean up the forum a lot :)

    Yup, people lack basic comprehension skills. I'm linking this thread wherever I see a thread open regarding this.

    Hi there, cannot be merged, as the earlier post will come up first. I think we can give the link to this thread and then close it one by one.

    Or perhaps merge these, and pin your post. That way, people will see the issue, and the solution just below it. And we can put Answered in the title as well.
    Just thinking out loud here :)

    Google uses a type of staged rollout. So that can explain it.
    Pretty common for many apps on the Play Store.
