Contacts App terminating and tries to re install loop Android 8
- Google Pixel
- Android 8
Have a strange issues with the contacts app on a device we have here. I can go through the enrollment process as normal and all is ok until I start to use contacts.
After a few moments of using the contacts app it'll terminate itself, uninstalls any shortcuts I've placed on the home screen and then re install itself.
I've checked that the app is approved and authorised etc but for some reason it's just not playing ball. If the phone is setup as normal, i/e without enrollment into MDM the app works fine, it;s only when the phone is enrolled i'm getting this issue.

So more updates. The app has been re approved but Meraki insists on saying the date of when it was first approved.
The only option I might have now is to completly unapprove teh app but then i hit the risk of if the app is deleted so are users contacts. Now hopefully users have synched their contacts but it's still something I'd prefer to fix rather than format and re install type fix.
By default,all apps will bedisabled when enrolling in Device Owner mode, including the default SMS and phone dialing apps. In Work Profile mode, Systems Manager will automatically create a work version of default apps, indicated with the orange briefcase, into the work profile. The applications that are installed by default or treated as 'system apps' will vary by device manufacturer - for example, Samsung devices use different dialer, camera, and SMS apps from Google Nexus or Pixel devices.
To customize which default Android apps are provisioned into Device Owner mode, or duplicated into the managed work profile, see theControlling Android System Appsarticle.
