What To Do If Snapchat Crashes on Pixel 4a After Android 11

In this troubleshooting guide, we will show you what to do if Snapchat crashes on Pixel 4a after the Android 11 update. Issues like this are often minor and you may be able to get rid of it by doing a couple of procedures. Read on to learn more how to fix it. 

When a third-party app like Snapchat starts to crash, it’s probably just one of the minor app issues that occur every now and then. More often, it’s just pretty easy to fix. So if you’re one of the users with a problem like this, then this video should be able to help you. 

First solution: Close Snapchat and open it again

App crashes can be fixed by simply closing the app in question and reopening it. It will recreate the cache and most of the time, that would be enough to make it run smoothly again. So this must be the first thing you need to do. Here’s how: 

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen and stop at the middle to view apps you recently used. 
  2. Swipe up on Snapchat to close it. If you want, you may also close other apps. 

After that, launch Snapchat and see if the problem is fixed. 

Second solution: Force restart your Pixel 4a

If closing and reopening the app doesn’t fix the problem, then you should try refreshing the memory of your phone, as well as reload all apps and services. You can do those things by doing the Forced Restart. Here’s how you do it: 

  1. Press and hold the Power key for 8 seconds. This will trigger your phone to shut down and power back up. 
  2. Once the Google logo shows, release the Power key and wait until the device finishes the reboot. 

After the reboot, launch Snapchat and see if the problem is fixed. 

Third solution: Clear Snapchat’s cache and data

After doing the first two solutions and the app still crashes, then what you have to do next is to reset it. An app reset means clearing its cache and data. Most of the time, this will fix any app-related problem, and it’s pretty easy to do. Here’s how:

  1. Pull the app drawer up and look for Snapchat. 
  2. Tap and hold on its icon, and then tap App Info. 
  3. Tap Storage and cache. 
  4. Tap Clear cache. 
  5. Tap Clear storage and confirm it. 

After resetting the app, launch it and see if it still crashes. 

Fourth solution: Uninstall Snapchat and reinstall it

If the previous solution failed to fix the problem as well, then you have no other choice but to uninstall Snapchat from your phone. Doing so will remove all its installation files. After that, download a fresh copy from the Play Store to make sure you’re using the latest version. Here’s how you do it: 

  1. Pull the app drawer up and look for Snapchat. 
  2. Tap and hold on its icon, and then tap App Info. 
  3. Tap Uninstall and touch OK to confirm. 
  4. Once the app is successfully uninstalled, launch the Play Store.
  5. Search for Snapchat, and then tap Install. Now wait until the installation is finished. 

After the successful installation, launch Snapchat and log in to your account. It should work properly now. 

And that’s what you need to do if Snapchat crashes on Pixel 4a after the most recent Android 11 update. We hope that this guide can help you one way or the other.
