Some apps were crashing for Android users, but Google has fixed it. The issue was due to a system component called Android System WebView that lets Android apps display web content.
Google now has a fix that requires users to update Android System WebView to version 89.0.4389.105 and Google Chrome to the latest version. Both are available on Google Play.
The issues began on Monday afternoon and lasted about seven hours, according to the Google Workspace dashboard for Gmail. The company recommended using the desktop interface until issues were resolved.
“We are aware of an issue with WebView causing some apps on Android to crash for some users,” Google said in a statement that “We are currently working to fully validate the scope and a fix is in progress.”
Earlier, Google Chrome has recently announced to roll out tab groups for Android with a new grid layout.
The feature has been exclusive to desktop versions of Google Chrome ever since, but it is finally rolling out to Android as well.
This new layout reportedly substitutes the vertically arranged list of cards on the screen with smaller tabs. However, you can see more of the page without it being concealed by other cards. With the new view, Android users also get to use tab groups on Google Chrome, where they can drag and drop one tab on another in order to form groups.
