Google was pushing Chrome 79 update for Android Devices however, it seems the compy will have to halt it. There is a bug in this update that resulted in the loss of data in many android Apps. When this bug hit any user and he opens a certain app, the app was totally new as if someone is using it for the very first time. Before Android 10, chrome managed the rendering of web pages inside other apps with a feature called WebView on Android. Due to this bug, Google had to stop the Update to Android Version of Chrome.
Update to Android Version of Chrome Lands as a Disappointment for Developers
When this bug affected thousands of people, for sure they gave a poor review to the app and their developers. The developers then caught the issue calling this bug a “catastrophe” and a “major issue.”
One developer summed up the problem by saying,
“If you don’t fix it somehow ALL my users will lost (sic) all their data in the same moment they open the app.”
Another developer wrote,
“Thank you for stopping the destructive update V79. We‘ve got also a Cordova app which has lost all data. Our affected users are very upset and in the best case in contact with our support. Others just 1-star bombed our app, which I can also understand. An app which loses it‘s data just deserved it from the users perspective.” And yet another developer said that he was forced to shut down his app and remove it from the Play Store. He adds that his reputation is “dead.”
