I have had an issue with Chrome since I bought the phone. Chrome randomly froze for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes or more. Another phone purchased at the same time does not do it. I tried clearing Chromes data and uninstalling and reinstalling all Chrome updates but it did not help. I finally have it fixed now so I thought I would share what worked. Go into settings, then apps. Find Android System Web view. Disable it. That will clear all data and uninstall updates. Then reinstall it. That cured my problems.

See I have another issue with Chrome. It keeps reenabling itself several times a day!! I HATE chrome and disable it or Uninstal it if I can on every device I get. Now tho, all my android devices are doing this. It makes me so angry!

You can uninstall via adb or disable it via the lg package disabler in the market. If you don't use adb there's a tutorial on XDA.

Yeah I need to find time to do this. I am so sick of it, several times a day it re-enabling itself, I have to go uninstall from play store, go to apps, wipe cache, wipe data, then location gets enabled, I have to deny that and then force stop and disable. It is so irritating.

Thanks, I'm giving this a try. When it freezes for me, I can get it unstuck by tapping the recent apps button, then going directly back to Chrome, so has only been a minor annoyance. Pretty sure it happened on my Razer Phone 2 as well.

After re-enabling ASW, did you update it again on the Play store? I did, but too soon to see if this works for me.

Chrome has been working like absolute trash for months on a lot of android phones. I don't know the exact reason. It's happened on almost all recent OnePlus phones as well and is well documented. I have the issue on this v60, on my OnePlus 7t and on my note 10+. However, chrome beta works much better than standard chrome in my experience.

Well this trick didn't work for me. Still freezing multiple times a day.

Yes, I did repudiate. The only issue I have now is that sometimes two finger zoom stops working. (I have zoon enabled in accesibility settings)
