Samsung Gear Plug-In keeps stopping on my Google Pixel XL
So about 2-3 days ago I started to notice that everytime I oppened the Samsung Gear app on my Google Pixel XL, it kept saying "Plug-In has stopped" or "Plug-In keeps stopping" so I decided to delete the plugin and the samsung gear app from my phone and re-install it. I restarted both devices, but alas I keep getting the same error message. Not sure what I should be doing different.
I have a Google Pixel XL running Android version 8.0.0 and a Samsung Gear S3. I'm not sure what other specs are necessary, but please let me know and I'll find them.
Thank you for any help you can provide on the matter.
