My Samsung Messages app keeps closing. I've restarted my phone multiple times. I've gone to Settings > App Settings > Messages > Storage and hit Clear cache and Clear data. When I do this, the space used for cache and data go down to 0, but then immediately go back up to the original storage amounts when I reopen Messages.

I found a previous conversation about Messages crashing in Dec 2023 and tried following the instructions but when I held down the power button and volume up with the phone turned off, the phone restarted as normal, even though I held them down until after the Samsung logo disappeared.

If I can't fix it, can I install a different app for

My Google storage is 94% full. Could that be connected?

I followed the instructions to force stop the google meet app and uninstalled the updates; it worked, messages are no longer crashing. It has certainly had me frustrated all day, what a relief.

Disable Google Meets in settings, and it will allow messages to start working again
Open app drawer search for Meets once it's located long press on it and select disable
