Google has acknowledged the issues and has stated that it is working on fixes.

“Thank you for raising this issue to our attention of being unable to launch apps after updating to M96 stable. Our team is aware of this and we are working quickly to resolve this issue,” wrote a Chrome support manager.

To recall, Chrome 96 was released last week and brought support for backwards-forward cache for the desktop version. Apart from this, the browser also gets a new site-wise dark theme mode.

The new backwards-forward cache feature will save some data from the frequently or recently visited website to make navigation through them faster. Whereas, the site-wise dark theme mode will allow users to enable the dark theme for certain websites.

With the update, the company has also stopped the sync feature for Chrome M48 or earlier users. The Chrome sync feature stores your passwords, bookmarks, search history, open tabs and preferred settings on the company’s server, thus allowing you to access all the stored information across various devices by using the same Google account. It also helps users automatically sign in to Gmail, YouTube and other Google services.
