Google Pixel 2 (Oreo) — 6 APPs I Installed Disappeared, UNINSTALLED by System!
As some of you know (from all the posts on this blog) I got myself 128GB Google Pixel 2 phone for Christmas 2017 — my first real smartphone.
Between Christmas and Friday I installed 8 APPs from the Play Store. They are APPs that I also have on my ASUS ZenPad.
These 8 APPs were:
1. Garmin Connect
2. Samsung Gear
3. FAST (speed test from NetFlix)
4. Amazon Kindle
5. Bank of America
6. Fidelity Investments
7. Project Fi
8. NVMS7000 (security camera app).
Configured them all with account numbers, passwords etc. AND used them all. Took me 20 minutes to set up NSMS7000.
This evening, i.e., Saturday, December 30, 2017, I went to use FAST.
It was NOT there!
Then realized other APPs were missing. Home screen nearly empty. See above image.
From the 8 installed ONLY Project FI and Samsung GEAR remained.
Others gone. Not in APP tray. Not in APPs.
Appears in the Play Store Library — but not as INSTALLED.
I did NOT uninstall them.
I just reinstalled and configured them — with the exception of NVMS7000. That takes time and I need my tablet to serve as crib sheet for the settings.
Called up Google Support. Got the Manila (Philippines) Call Center. That is a frigging JOKE. They are doing ‘ganja’. It is so strong you can smell it over the phone!
