If you are facing the problem of the Google app crashing in your phone with a message, you are not alone, there have been many reports that the app suffers from instability across Android phones.
While Google appears to be aware of the issue, there are a few things you can do to address the issue for now.
One of the biggest issues with the app at the moment is crashes across a wide range of devices and Android versions.
The crash appears to be caused by a new update, as the bug affected multiple versions of the app which can vary depending on the phone you’re using and the OS version your phone is running.
The Google app crash issue can also cause crashes in other apps like Google Lens, podcasts, or even the voice assistant. This is because these applications are fully integrated with the application.
So far, the app crash issue doesn’t seem to be limited to an Android phone or version.
It is also not limited to the beta version of the app, and many users are running the stable version of the app within their phones and yet they are affected by the issue.
