The companion software for Samsung’s smartwatches, earphones, and other wearable gadgets received an update recently. However, it appears that the upgrade did more damage than good. The most recent version’s failure to launch or frequent crashes have been reported by a number of users, making the program useless. Affected consumers have vented their outrage on internet forums like Reddit and Samsung Community, urging other users not to update the Galaxy Wearable app.
According to user reports, the issue appears to be with the app’s version 188.8.131.5262261. The majority of people worldwide have already seen it since it launched late last week. However, many users are unable to access the app following the update. When the program does open, it usually crashes right away. Others have reported that when they attempt to open Galaxy Wearable, the screen goes blank.
Samsung has acknowledged the problem and stated that a patch is being developed. The business suggests an workaround to get the most recent Galaxy Wearable app up and running in the interim. A moderator on the Samsung Community forums claims that the issue arises when users don’t give the app permission to access nearby devices. Giving that permission should take care of everything.
