Problems on app crashes are usually tied to corrupted files and data from within the errant app. But in some cases, an app can become a bit shaky due to other factors including faulty updates, invalid settings, system bugs, and malware. Generally, the main issue is from within the software structure and is therefore rectifiable. Among the most prevalent app issues emerging in various types of Android devices are the ones that are depicted by the “Unfortunately, app has stopped” error prompt.

Many people have encountered this error while using stock apps including Camera, Phone, Messaging, and the like. It also happens to third-party or downloaded apps including browser apps like Chrome, Internet, Facebook, and Twitter, to name some. Tackled in this post is the same error transpiring on the Galaxy A50 Chrome application.

To explain, an app runs on multiple resources which include a processor, memory, RAM, and other components that collectively make the application work. However, in the case when the app has issues or bugs or even minor glitches, it may not open and that is what introduces app crashes since Chrome will crash with the same message aforementioned. However, when it comes to Google Chrome, its developers are actively participating in fixing every major and minor bug or glitch that can become an obstacle between the user and his task which could be surfing, browsing, watching videos, etc.

Fix, Google Chrome has stopped error on My Galaxy A50

Check the Error

Error codes or messages are usually key to solving problems. If your app displays an error every time it fails to send texts, be sure to take note of it. Then, do a Google search about the exact message or code and see if there’s any available online solution.

Check Internet Speed

Video buffering usually takes more bandwidth than normal surfing or browsing the internet. Make sure your speed enough to stream that video. There are many ways to check internet speed. In our case, we are using a website called fast.com to check internet speed.

If your internet connection speed is faster but intermittent, it may also cause video streaming to lag or buffer. To check if you have an intermittent internet connection, connect to known working wifi. If the problem continues even when internet connection speed is fast, there may be other factors involved.
