Pixel 2 XL camera app crashes. 1 Recommended Answer 186 Replies 394 Upvotes

I've tried clearing the permissions, uninstalling the update, clearing the storage, reinstalling the update, safe mode, and even factory restoring the phone to no avail. Google support says I'm SOL, and out of warranty. The front-facing camera works just fine, and I was able to get the rear to work for about 2 seconds once but the app crashed again. The phone works fine otherwise. I'm fairly certain it's not hardware. 
Any help would be appreciated.


Update: I've randomly got it to work several times now, so I know its not hardware for sure. Google fix your software before another class-action lawsuit hits your front door!

Hi Michael,

Thanks for posting and coming back with the update too. Do you recall what’s causing the issue? Also if you face the same issue again can you check for the same in safe mode? As safe mode disables all third party apps that’ll have the camera permission. 

Regards,
Piyush

The issue is still present when in safe mode. Got it to work normally only 2 times out of dozens. Any new updates from Google on fixing the Camera app?

@michael last update to the Google camera app in the app store says March. Not sure why it just started happening.

I have the same issue on my Pixel 4 and have been experiencing since the December 2020 security update. The app pops up a dialog to say somethings gone wrong and then crashes. There's tons of threads about this all over the internet for Pixel 2/3/4 but still apparently no solution. Third party apps that use the camera are also unable to access it, so I think it is a problem with something more generic that the actual camera app (i.e. something that was changed in the December security update).
