Updates/upgrades can and do break things.
Try -if- possible updating the app.
No easy fix if the app is no longer compatible with the firmware though and hasn't been updated.
Try clearing the data, reinstalling said apps.
Or simply don't use them for the time being.
If another app like Google play Services is used by the problem widget, dependencies, clear it's data.
A factory reset may solve the issue but don't count on it...

My stock N10+ firmware hasn't been updated in 2.5 years, current load is 2 yo, still fast, stable and fulfilling its mission. Security is not an issue. However resolving app updates issues has cost me more wasted time then anything else. All were resolved without a factory reset... easier said than done🤣

Google makes changes for the sake of change alone. All too often not in the end users best interests. Just because you're busy doesn't mean your productive... Gookill.

I confirm here that this is indeed a problem with the new June security patch.
Here are some widgets I found that have this problem (crashes Pixel Launcher when tapped)
1. Galaxy Buds Manager
2. Habits (blue reload icon) with it's checkbox widget (you must create a habit and select it to reproduce)
3. All Google Fit widgets

In fact most widgets I tried worked, but there are those which crashes every single time you tap on it.
Not sure what is going on.

Sometimes or even often if a simple copy/paste of an image to a post doesn't work, you can download your image to a file, click the Insert image button in the post, click where it says click here, add the image as an attachment, then from the successful attachment you can choose whether to insert the full image or a thumbnail into the post. This works for me almost all the time that pasting directly into the post fails.



So, sounding like the widget problem is with the Pixel Launcher.

    Since updating to the June build the pixel launcher crashes every time I press on a widget. I've tried deleting the widget and readding it and clearing the cache in pixel launcher. I haven't cleared data yet because I think that will lose all of my home screen setup. Is anyone else experiencing this or know how to fix it?

    I just temporarily switched from Nova Launcher Prime to the Pixel Launcher on the June update and clicked on the At a Glance widget, and it loaded the weather fine.

    I hope you find an easy solution.

    Using any Magisk Modules? If so, disable them, reboot, and try again.

    I'll give that a shot. Widgets that open an app work fine but the ones that do an action like pressing play on my Audible widget cause it to crash. I only have some basic magisk modules but I will try disabling them and see if it helps. Thanks for the suggestion.
