Several apps including Gmail experience outage on Android

Google has addressed an issue that was causing multiple apps from the Google Play Store including their own Gmail, GPay, and others, to intermittently crash and stop working for several hours on Monday. The problem stemmed from an error in Android System Web View, a backend service which runs apps on Google’s Android platform. An update to Web View has been released which now corrects the problem.

Search the play store for "Android system webview" and hit update. This thing was screwing up my Gmail app and some of my games! 🤬
