In the last hours, many of you have written to us in relation to the numerous crashes that your Xiaomi applications are suffering . Unexpected closures or messages of the type " msa still does not work " that seem to have a cause and also, fortunately, a solution.
And it is that apparently, these problems are given by WebView , causing applications such as Gmail or Amazon to close unexpectedly. The good thing is that the fault has been located and until it is solved, there is a little trick so that it does not affect us.
In itself, WebView is in charge of third-party applications that have a browser. For example, when we open a link from Twitter , Amazon or Gmail , it loads in this Google browser, causing unexpected closings.
A bug in the internal code of WebView and one of its latest updates is causing certain applications to close unexpectedly , showing the same error message that we can see on these lines.
How to fix problems with your Xiaomi applications
Fortunately, Google has quickly located this bug and has released a new update to WebView . To do this, we just have to uninstall all the updates by performing the following steps:
- Go to Settings> Applications> Manage applications
- Once inside we look for Android System WebView and click on " Uninstall updates "
It should be noted that this is affecting not only Xiaomi devices , but practically any Android that uses WebView. Therefore, the solution for this is the same, either update to the latest version or do without them.
