Google Photos isn’t working properly on iOS, WHY ?
The software almost always crashes when users attempt to access it, according to a number of users.
Following Apple’s most recent iOS 16.3.1 update, Google Photos appears to be failing for many users. In order to access or manage your Google photo collection, the app crashes upon launch, according to many members and users on Twitter.
Even though not everyone is experiencing the issue—a few users, like myself, claim they can open Google Photos without issue—the crashing still seems to be a very common occurrence. Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Maps, among other Google applications, all appear to be operating normally.
What might be causing the issue and why just some people are affected are still unknown. According to Apple’s release notes, the iOS update (which may or may not have caused the problem) is purportedly just minor and is primarily intended to resolve bugs and a few security vulnerabilities.
According to Michael Marconi, a Google representative, the firm is aware of the problem and is “in the midst of sending out a fix in version 6.23.1 of the Google Photos app.”
