A bug that has affected dozens of Android apps has been fixed, solving the crashing issues that Call of Duty: Mobile suffered yesterday.
An annoying bug that affected the Android version of Call of Duty: Mobile has now been fixed, meaning that the app no longer crashed at the initial load screen. The mobile title is a popular spin-0ff of the main Call of Duty franchise that is available on both Android and iOS, featuring some of the best maps and weapons from the entire series. The success of Call of Duty: Mobile has led to Activision continually updating the game with new content and features.
Recently, the Call of Duty: Mobile Season 2 update added two fan-favorite maps into the rotation for matches. Both Shipment and Shoot House are available to play in multiplayer, giving fans a chance to try out the chaotic and tight levels. The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare versions of the two maps are used in the mobile title, meaning that they have an updated look compared to their classic counterparts.

A bug that forced Call of Duty: Mobile to continually crash has now been fixed on Android. Yesterday, users attempting to play the game were unable to do so as the app would fail to load past the opening screen. Reddit user No_Eggplant4951 recorded a video of the error, which can be seen below. It appears as if the problem was related to a new update that Google had released for the Android System WebView, with Redditor bruzliftw reporting that uninstalling the update fixed the issue. The error did not just involve Call of Duty: Mobile, with many other apps relying on Android System WebView to display content from web pages. The Verge has now confirmed with Google that the bug has been fixed, meaning that the game and other apps should all now work as normal.
In February, Call of Duty: Mobile developer TiMi Studios suggested that the progression system in the game could change in the future. As more players have hit the level cap of 150, there has been increased demand to either raise the level or add a Prestige mode. Although there are currently no plans in place to introduce these changes soon, the studio is seemingly considering them for possible updates.
Despite the fact that it is free-to-play, Call of Duty: Mobile has become one of the most important releases in Activision’s library. It has a large user base and plenty of opportunities for monetization, meaning that the publisher will obviously want to avoid any periods of downtime. Fortunately, the bug affecting the Android version of the game was fixed within a few hours.
