Just posting some info for any Android phone users out there who are experiencing lots of apps crashing.
Since late on Sunday night millions of Android users have experienced apps such as Gmail, Amazon, Facebook (and even the Pure Planet app!) crashing.
The cause is an Android update to ‘web view’ - which is when an app launches any type of website - which Google says has now been fixed.
If this is still happening to you, here are the steps to take to fix it:
- navigate to the Play Store app
- search for Android System WebView
- select the "Update" option
- repeat these steps for Google Chrome
Check out this BBC report which has a bit more info.
