Google Is Fixing The December Bug In Android 4.2


Share this Post

The latest mobile OS from Google - Android 4.2 - has been found to contain a few bugs that ruin the experience for some Nexus device users. The bugs seem to be specifically affecting those on the Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus. One bug in particular deleted December from the People app, but Google is already on it.

Google acknowledged the bug yesterday on the Android Google+ page, and said that the Android team was already busy on a fix. The team also clarified that the bug only affects the people app, and that December is still available on the calendar app.


We discovered a bug in the Android 4.2 update, which makes it impossible to enter December events in optional fields of the People app (this bug did not affect Calendar). Rest assured, this will be fixed soon so that those of you with December birthdays and anniversaries won't be forgotten by your friends and family.

Google is fixing the most visible bug in Android 4.2, but users are hoping that Googles gets a few more fixes in before the end of the year. As we reported yesterday, some users are experiencing everything from random crashes to batteries that drain faster than usual.

It should be noted that commenters in yesterday's story let us know that their devices running Android 4.2 aren't actually giving them any problems. The issues don't seem to be widespread just yet, but the fact that they're affecting more than just a few users is a problem.
