One frustrated user tweeted: “Samsung team my apps keep crashing since yesterday and the Android system WebView is disable already on my phone can’t remove it or do anything.what to do ??????”
Whilst another added: “Please help! Google apps keep crashing on Samsung galaxy s8. I am unable to install Android system webview app.”
It’s currently unclear what users need to do next although we expect Google and smartphone manufacturers will address these ongoing issues in the coming days.
In a statement sent to Express.co.uk, a Google spokesperson said: “We have resolved the issue with WebView that caused some apps on Android to crash for some users. Updating Android System WebView and Google Chrome via Google Play should now resolve the issue.”
If you haven’t already updated your phone to the latest WebView version then here’s what you need to try first.
