Android users are finding that their devices are crashing on their own.
The problem appears to be related to a series of built-in apps on the phone. Most users are reporting problems with the Google app, but those problems have spread to affect the podcast service and Assistant, which rely on the same app.
It seems to be present on a wide range of phones, from Google’s own Pixel to Samsung.
Users see a warning that says “Google keeps stopping”, and asks them to close the app.
On Twitter, Google suggested that users should try a soft reboot, by holding down the power button for 30 seconds. While this seems to work for some users – others complained that the problem stuck around.
Others indicated that this could be resolved by including it in the Google app beta so that the new version can be downloaded. This is done by signing up to a program that allows access to the initial version via this link, and then downloading the new beta version through the Play Store.
The issues recall similar problems in March, when the phone started crashing on its own. Again, the problem with the Android system webview tool, which is used by the phone to render web pages – and because it’s such a central, if mostly ignored part of the app, bugs can quickly lead to other problems. spreads across the app.
