Samsung’s Galaxy Buds apps keep crashing for some, but a fix is ​​promised


In the meantime, here are some workarounds you can try

Samsung’s full range of Galaxy Buds are the best wireless earbuds you can get your hands on right now, especially if you have a Galaxy phone with you. The actual hardware is great, but a lot of that great experience has to do with the feature-rich software that you can install on your phone to configure your sound and usage to suit your needs. Things can fall apart quickly if that software goes down, though, and that’s sadly exactly what Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds Pro owners have had to put up with over the past few days.


According to multiple complaints on Samsung’s official forums and on Reddit, both the Galaxy Buds Manager and Galaxy Buds Pro Manager apps keep crashing and bothering users by issuing “keeps stopping” or “not responding” prompts every few minutes , even when the buds are not in use. The issue doesn’t appear to be smartphone specific, but the crashes have been mostly reported from Samsung phones like the Galaxy S22, Galaxy Note20, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. It’s also quite possible that the Galaxy Buds’ other manager apps are also affected – 9to5Google reports that apps managing the Galaxy Buds 2 and Galaxy Buds Live are doing the same.

Funnily enough, the Galaxy Watch4 plugin is suffering from the exact same issue at the moment, making it likely that the issues are related to the Watch and Buds apps, while making the situation worse for users who have both apps installed.

Hopefully what’s causing the crashes won’t be hanging around for long – a Samsung moderator says “an update is coming soon to fix it”.

In the meantime, you can try reinstalling the affected app as a workaround. Before doing this, make sure that the Galaxy Wearables app has the “Nearby devices” permission granted, as recommended by the same moderator. Then make sure you select Galaxy Buds version 4.1.22051251 to install. It has actually done the job for some and can do the same for you.
