Hi,
I came back to EU after sometime in aosp and I noticed that since 21.2.24 Google Dialer keeps closing even if it's set as calls preferred app.
I've tried also 21.3.3 and issue persists, even in 21.3.10.
Is there maybe a fix for it? Thanks!

I forgot to say that I'm on Mi 9.

The best thing of xiaomi.eu is that Google dialer is not there
BTW, install it, set it in default apps as default dialer, then reboot to teamwin and do a dalvik/cache wipe. Then reboot and see

I find it useful for spam calls.
Btw I tried your steps (even if it was already the default app) with no luck.

Is it the play store version?

Yes, downloaded from play store.
I asked a friend on MMX to try Google Dialer and he faced my same issue.
Since MMX is based on eu rom, i guess there must be something with eu or china rom.

Well... our ROMs don't have full Google network stack integration, so might be the reason.

Oh, got it
Now I tried on mine
It crashes because it needs another app to provide telephony service and telephony settings, from Google too. Google dialer doesn't work if default phone apps are not Google made.
Search for magisk modules if u really want it (or use truecaller instead)

I have been using the Google Phone app on RN8 for many weeklies with no issues whatsoever. I just set it to default and voila.

BTW, (I'm Not a sponsor), truecaller is a lot better than Google dialer for spam protection (for calls and SMS) and other features
Send me ur email and I can give u the file

Never used truecaller, i don't even know how it works.
I opened this thread as a bug because it used to work on January builds. I've tried to download google framework module but nothing changes, maybe it's another module XD

Truecaller is not working too.
Default app, all permissions given, and it switches to MIUI dialer.
21.2.24 was a clean flash, so I don't know what else can I do

So weird behavior, let's give specialists a word

Redmi Note 8 is on Android 11 currently. But I have never had a problem with the Google Phone app on it on any version, it must be something on the OP's end or device specific.

Update: I took a logcat to see what was causing this issue. Some permission was silently denied (maybe due to Miui security) and was causing Google Dialer to crash.
