Pixel 2 camera app crashes constantly
1
The camera app on my Pixel 2 is constantly crashing, it boots up, shows a black screen for about 3 seconds, then crashes. I've tried the usual troubleshooting options offered and still nothing. Same crash happens when trying to use the camera with WhatsApp, instagram, Facebook. I downloaded a third party camera app and still the same issue. The phone is out of warranty, but from reading other posts this seems to be a software problem specific to Pixel 2, any help is appreciated.

Liam- Welcome to the Android Help Community. Normally after what you have already done I would think it's hardware. But I will move this over to the Pixel Help Community and see what our team Iver there thinks.
 
Be well.

It's not hardware.  Mine is doing the same thing.

@Liam, this is a known issue (Just look at the dozens of posts on here) the issue happened as a result of an operating system update Google pushed to Android 10 (?) sometime in early May. It is happening to hundreds or thousands of Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL owners.

A few tips:
Contact Google to see if your phone is under warranty (device-support@google.com) If it is not they will not help you and will only offer support for around $300 to "repair your device". There is no known solution.

Both my Pixel 2 XL and my wife's Pixel 2 are having this problem as well. Occasionally the camera will load for a few minutes following a restart, but as soon as you switch apps and come back, it crashes. This even happens in safe mode.

I'm getting tired of google phone at this rate. The last two updates seems to mess up the phone. First it caused issue with usb charging, then an update fixed that issue, only thing is, it also introduce a camera crashing issue. I was extremely happy with my google phone, but now i have second thoughts upgrading to another google phone.
