But, several third-party applications can create problems. Although Google Pixel 2 is running on the Android operating system, it doesn’t have lots of bloatware like other Android devices.

Here is how to troubleshoot Snapchat crashing issue in Google Pixel 2
Try rebooting your Pixel 2
Such problems are most likely to be caused by firmware glitches, and rebooting the device will fix them. If Snapchat was running correctly earlier but starts crashing suddenly, then firmware or app glitches could be the reason behind it. Try opening the Snapchat for two-three times with all applications and programs closed. If this doesn’t work, then try rebooting your Pixel. Shut down your device completely and restart after a minute. Now without starting any other application, launch Snapchat. If this works, try running the app a few times to see if it still crashes.
Unfortunately, if the problem still arises, try force restarting your Pixel. A force restart is more effective than a normal reboot. Doing so refreshes your Pixel 2 with the entire installed application and services.
Clear cache and data from the Snapchat app
Maybe the app is crashing due to an incorrect configuration, settings, or files. Clearing cache and data from the application reset everything to the default value. Here is how to clear cache and data from the Snapchat app in Google Pixel 2.

You can also try updating the Snapchat app if this troubleshoots the Snapchat crashing issue in your Google Pixel 2, that’s good.
