Apps not working

First Poster

 After an overnight update by Google, now the Google group of apps will open but when used the app just closes and the tablet goes back to the home screen. There is a box that pops up every time saying app has stopped working. I can access Google and outlook and other sites through the internet okay. I have tried uninstalling the apps and reinstalling but the same thing happens.

Can you try deleting the apps cache and data before uninstalling and also navigate to your Play Store and under my apps delete them there too. 

If you download them again and the same happens then my suggestion is to back up and factory reset. 

 

If still no joy then a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Centre location can help.

I tried deleting various apps with no success. Then I noticed my tablet had updated some Google apps overnight chrome being one of them .I disabled chrome and my tablet now works okay no further problems everything back to normal. So the chrome update was the cause.

It's good that you found the rogue app but as Google chrome is widely used I'd expect to see more posts raising the issue. 

 

You could go within the app and send a bug report to the developer.

I had the same problem overnight with my samsung galaxy tab (2016) and disabling chrome did the trick.  I enabled it again and everything is working fine.  Thanks for the hint!!
