Some users mentioned the technique worked for them. However, not for everyone, and since it might take some time for Google to patch up the faulty version, not updating your app would be the better option.
How Can You Stop The Update?
Fortunately, there is a way to fix this until Google rolls out an update patch. You can go to the Apps section in the device Settings and search for Google. Next, tap on the stop, disable, or Force Stop. This is a temporary fix, and users are advised not to update to the 18.104.22.168.arm64 version until Google officially fixes this issue.
You can also try uninstalling the Google app update by heading to Settings > Apps > Google app > three-dot menu > Uninstall updates.
This will prevent your android from installing the latest version until Google comes with a new updated version.
