  • Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 owners face issues with their companion apps.
  • The Galaxy Wearable app update has brought some bugs and app crashes to Watch 4 users.
  • The app crash was reported beside a Galaxy Watch 4 manager plug-in unresponsiveness.

Samsung Galaxy Watches are typically accompanied by Galaxy Wearable companion apps. The recent update to the very app has reportedly caused problems for several Galaxy Watch 4 owners. Reports suggest that another update also appears to have broken a Galaxy Watch 4 plug-in for some users.

Last week, users started registering complaints on a Reddit thread (via 9to5Google). The app with the 2.2.49.22062261 version number seems to cause the problem here. Another report from Tizen Help also suggests both the app updates released by Samsung appeared to have gone haywire, crashing the apps above. The report further hints that the same issue was witnessed by beta users. However, it was fixed by Samsung quickly, with a newer version rolled out.
