Wattpad crashing on launch on the Android app

Hi Wattpadders, 

We're aware of some instances were people are having trouble opening the Wattpad app, and it crashes upon start up or after logging in. We believe this is most likely due to a Google Play issue that Google has now since fixed - if you're still experiencing this issue, it could be that you need to manually update the feature that was affected. Please try and update the Android System WebView on your phone, it should be available in the Google Play Store. 

If you're still having trouble after updating the Android System WebView, please send in a ticket to Support and we can investigate further. Thanks for your patience and understanding!
