Starting yesterday, the game completely closes if I switch to another app, then back to the game. This could have *significant* impact if I were to switch between apps or allow my screen to lock during a battle or event. This is on a Pixel 6 device with the latest June update.

I also have this issue since a few days ago on my Pixel 6 with the most recent update.
Unsurprised to see the usual "please try these troubleshooting steps" response trotted out again. Maybe instead you could take some time to actually investigate the reported issues in your game instead of ignoring them.
I can't tell if this is an issue with the app or an issue with the most recent Android update, but I'm reasonably certain it started before I updated with the June update.
I have cleared all app cache and data, reinstalled the game.
The issue only happens with GOH. None of the other games I play daily suffer from such aggressive memory management.
Edit: I updated Android to the June update on Monday June 6th but looking at Discord I was complaining about this issue the day before I updated.
I have this same problem on a Pixel 6 Pro with the latest Android updates. If you do as much as try to answer a text message or take a phone call it runs the risk of closing the app.
What I see on the screen is that it appears to try to rotate something to portrait mode, then back to landscape mode as it exits the SWGOH app and returns you to the home screen on the phone.
No other apps do this, it is not something solved by the trivial troubleshooting steps proposed by EA support above.
I have uninstalled the swgoh app completely, rebooted the phone, reinstalled swgoh and it still occurs.
I have tried to clear data/cache and and it still occurs.
I have tried disabling Android System WebView and reenabling it as suggested elsewhere on the internet.
I've also noticed the portrait/landscape thing but I do wonder if that's just looking for a pattern and I just hadn't noticed it before. It doesn't seem to have a bearing on whether the app will close in the background or not, after testing a bit today. It just seems completely arbitrary, but there are some apps that are much more likely to force SWGOH to close when switching to them - Discord, for example, will close the game in the background almost every time when switching between the 2.

I'm having all of the above problems. Force restarting the program when switching and the portrait landscape issue as well. I am using a pixel 6 Pro with the latest updates and this has only happened. Since the game has been updated. I have removed the game and the phone behaves flawlessly Ergo, The problem must be the game. I have not got this issue on any other applications at all.
If I uninstall the game and use discord and the camera app and dozens of other applications, I can switch between them without any of them needing to be relaunched.
As soon as I install this game the issues reoccur. It must be interfacing with the memory somehow either for notifications or something else, but it is definitely causing issues.
Ugh. Now that would be a pain. Because it doesn't half knacker the battery constantly loading the game.
I don't play another other games but use high memory applications and looking at memory usage it doesn't seem to tickle the 12 GB I have, so I'm not entirely convinced there isn't an issue as well as something else. That said, you may be right so not sure what we can do but it's a pain.
