Google pauses Chrome update for Android soon after reviews of app data loss – Engadget

Chrome updates are generally fantastic items, but some Android consumers have good cause to complain about the newest launch. Google has paused the rollout for Chrome seventy nine on Android right after reviews of the update ‘wiping’ information from third-party applications that use the WebView framework. The information is technically however intact, but there is certainly no way to access it — and that is a dilemma when some apps depend heavily or completely on WebView. It truly is not very clear which apps are the hardest-strike, but Twitter Lite is an case in point of just one that relies heavily on Google’s system.
