    Anyone found a solution? It only does this on WiFi. This is a problem on the OnePlus 6 series too. Google apps, LinkedIn comments ... All hang when you use them on WiFi.

    To test: Switch off your data and be on WiFi only. Try opening the YouTube app. It will hang forever. Turn on your cellphone network again and 'mysteriously', YouTube loads. Turn off your cellphone network again and try using LinkedIn - post a comment. It hangs. Try using Google Home. Hangs. You can browse the internet, sure, but try using the apps - you can't.

    So all the time you've been using your apps and think you've been using your WiFi, you've actually been using your phone's data.

    This is unacceptable.

    I've tried to find a solution that does NOT necessitate a factory reset. Clearing cache or data on apps doesn't work. Modifying data settings doesn't work. Uninstalling and reinstallingYouTube via ADB or root seems overkill, especially as this would need to be done for ALL affected apps.

    This is not an Android problem, or Google problem - it's a OnePlus problem, and a known one too that needs resolving.

    Any clues, folks?

    Urm, so I just did this and watched the United vs PSG highlights on YouTube, over WiFi with data switched off 🤷‍♂️

    Can't seem to replicate this issue

    The phone was playing up, and navigating this forum to delete it was a nightmare, hence two. It wasn't intentional. Thanks for merging.

    No worries. Agreed at times when the internet has glitch a double post or Thread happens 🙂
