Samsung Messages keeps crashing? Disable Google Meet.

Samsung's native Messages app keeps crashing recently? You're not alone. Samsung smartphone users posted complaints of their Messages app crashing. The Messages app comes pre-installed on Samsung phones; note this is a separate app from Google's Messages app (the Google logo appears on the Google Messages app).

The error was due to an update to Google Meet. As a temporary remedy, try setting Google Messages as your default message app, or disabling / uninstalling the Google Meet app.
Go to Settings > Apps > Meet > Force Stop, then click uninstall updates.

Google has issued a patch on fixing the random crashes. With the Google Meet patch issued, be sure to update your Meet app. Otherwise, keep it disabled or use Google Messages.
