Okay, since I installed beta2 this morning, I've had two - three apps crashing such as:
Members, Gmail, (phone) Settings app, and occasionally GBoard. 

This solution seems to have cleared things up:

Press and hold Side key until you see Power Off - select it to power off the phone.

Now, off to the Maintenance (Recovery) screen:

Press and HOLD the Volume Up key, and while holding, press and HOLD the Side key.

When the Samsung splash screen appears, release both keys. Within a few seconds, you'll see the Maintenance screen, with a number of menu options.

Use the Volume Down key to highlight Wipe Cache Partition. Press Side key, select "Yes".

Now, Use Volume key to highlight "Repair Apps" (should be last menu option). Use Side key to select it.

The phone will automagically restart. Let the phone settle down for a couple of minutes.

Retry the the troubled app(s).

Doesn't work for TikTok. App keeps crashing. This will be the last time I ever use a Samsung Beta 👎

If you can't handle issues like that, it's probably best you don't participate in beta programs. They are specifically designed to find bugs and crashes like that. Once reported it can get into the queue to be fixed and eventually released. There is an option to opt back out of the beta and go back to the previous version.

@jjino in the Samsung members app for the beta, click the gear icon at the top and go to manage beta status and withdraw from the beta. I believe shortly after that you can then do a system update and it should downgrade you to the previous release. If that doesn't work I think you can use Samsung smart switch on a PC.

Awesome advice! I was having issues and it cleared up. If they arise again, I'll for sure try the repair apps option!

Was hoping this would work for Torque pro app but it didn't. Will try again another time or just wait for the developer to update his side
