Crashes and ANRs in our Apps

Why do apps sometimes crash?

An app is a complex piece of software that depends on many other complex pieces of software to work correctly. Even if one of these has a subtle programming error, the entire app will crash.

In our apps, we strive to reduce our crash rate to effectively zero, but this is virtually impossible, so we try to make it as low as possible.

Despite all these, we try our very best to make our apps crash as little as possible.

How we Reduce Crashes

We do several things to detect and fix crashes.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯: For some crashes in Google libraries and tools, we really have no option but to shrug and say sorry! All we can say is, please keep reporting these issues, and we hope Google will address them in the next update.
