I can’t change the Wallpaper after installing One UI 5.0 Beta 3, it’s crashing [Fixed]



Samsung One UI 5 Wallpaper crashing issue

Samsung recently released the One UI 5.0 beta 4 update for Galaxy S22 series smartphones in different regions. This new beta update fixed the Wallpaper crashing issue that users were facing in One UI 5.0 beta 3. Now, you can easily apply Wallpaper on your smartphone’s home screen and lock screen.

September 23…

Samsung recently released the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 Beta 3 update for the Galaxy S22 series devices, which fixes several issues as well as brings some new features.

Along with this, the company has come up with a new Wallpapers section featuring device-specific wallpapers in the Featured tab, Gallery, Graphical, Colors, etc. That’s not enough because this beta update has brought some new issues along with issue fixes.

Join SammyFans On Telegram

After installing the One UI 5 Beta 3 update on Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, it has been noted that the Wallpaper app is not working properly. You are not able to set any wallpaper after this update because the app is crashing.

Samsung One UI 5 Wallpaper crashing issue

When you open in Wallpaper and Style section, you can see that all options including preview, color palette, and Dark mode are working properly but only after opening the “Browse my wallpaper” option the app is crashing. If it doesn’t crash after opening the section, it will crash when selecting any wallpaper from Featured, Gallery, Colors, Graphical, and more.

Samsung’s One UI 5.0 Beta 3 brings many new wallpapers but you are not able to set them on the home or lock screen of your smartphone. As of now, this issue has been found in the Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphones, there is a possibility that the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus smartphones may also have this issue as they have also received the One UI 5 beta 3 update.


It is for sure that this Wallpaper crashing issue has come in Samsung Galaxy S22 only after the release of the One UI 5.0 Beta 3 update. Recently Samsung released a new update for the Wallpaper and style app with version 2.1.18. The version working on Galaxy S22 Ultra is the same and maybe, the issue has been coming since this version.

Expected Solution

The expectation is that Samsung will soon fix the One UI 5 Wallpaper crashing issue by releasing the next beta update or can fix it by bringing an update to the wallpaper and style. However, there is no official information yet.

If you are also facing this issue in your Galaxy S22 series smartphone, then we can tell us through social media.
