For some users, the three-dot menu might not be visible. In that case, simply tap on the ‘Uninstall’ button and you will then be able to uninstall the latest update.

If you cannot find the Android System WebView app in the Apps section, the other option is to disable Google Chrome.

  1. Open Settings, go to Apps -> Google Chrome.
  2. Tap the ‘Disable’ button.
That’s it.

If the apps stop crashing now, there is no need to uninstall Android System WebView updates.

If apps continue to crash, then you will have to uninstall updates. Follow the steps mentioned in the first method.

Note that there won’t be any data loss as you’re not uninstalling Google Chrome – you’re simply disabling it. Once you re-enable the app, you will be able to browse as usual. As long as it is disabled, you can try out alternative web browsers like Mozilla’s Firefox, or Microsoft Edge, among other options.
