Google stopped working
« on: Tuesday 23 March 21 11:58 GMT (UK) »
On my Samsung tablet Android I'm getting the message Google has stopped working, also Email has stopped,
Google Play services and briefing has stopped.

Google is working fine through Chrome.
OK. I'm rather confused by what to do to sort it.
If I clear cache and data as some pages suggest will I lose anything.

I really don't know about the Force Stop , can anybody help me please.

It is a known fault. Google have supplied the following full instructions to get things fixed:

• To update Android System WebView and Google Chrome via Google Play:

• Navigate to Play Store app

• Search for Android System WebView

• Select the "Update" option

Do you mean the Play Store where you can download an app. I was looking in the settings section on my tablet.

You need to update the App via Google Play Store

Thanks.
From Play store I downloaded Messenger lite, it's working so far so good,  the Facebook linked one isn't.
I set up another email account with BT,  so thats OK, so far so good. 
I also downloaded a Google , is it Lite , fingers crossed. 

So if I go ahead and install your suggestion will that be OK.
I'm really quite useless so appreciate your help.🙂
