Hello, Everyone. 

It appears a recent update has caused a situation that's causing applications to crash. As soon as we were made aware of the situation, we have jumped on this and was able to find a resolution. 

These Steps should do the trick. 

  • Go To Settings
  • Tap "Apps"
  • look for "Android System Web View" 
  • Select "Uninstall Updates"

If you do not see an uninstall option please try uninstalling the app from the Play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.webview

You can also Uninstall Chrome Updates, if needed, this seems to be a resolution as well if you do not see an option on WebView. 

We would like to Thank all the Community members for coming together to alert Samsung of this! This is why our Community ROCKS! We are so thankful for all of you! :)
