The Google Android 8.0 has brought with itself, many new upgrades and features. But there is a major bug in the operating system. Know all about it.
Android Oreo is still not widely available in most devices as of now. While the Android 8 arrived for the Nexus and Pixel devices, now a OnePlus 3 closed beta group has received the latest update. While others wait for the latest Android OS to arrive in their smartphones, it should be noted that a bug associated with the new platform has been witnessed. According to a few people who have used Android Oreo, an issue has cropped up when the latest update was installed on their phones. After downloading the new Android OS, people have found that the mobile data in their mobiles were working even while the WiFi has been switched off. While this may not look like a big problem on paper, it can have a big effect on internet data.
This report came to light when a person on Reddit, called as ‘Unusual_Sauce’ wrote on the website that while using the latest version of Google’s mobile platform, the mobile data on the phone soar very high even while he/she was connected to the Wi-Fi. The report was first pointed out by tech website 9To5Google. Some of the other users on Reddit have noted that the Android 8.0 Oreo update causes the “mobile data always active” setting placed under Developer Options to switch on, according to the report. Since this setting was disabled by default previously, an issue might have been occurring.
This change in settings has lead to the mobile data ben effectively active even when a smartphone is connected to a working Wi-Fi network. However, you do have the option to disable the setting by going to the Developer Options. Meanwhile, the Redditor has said that when Google as contacted, the company said that it was aware of the issue and has been working on fixing the same. If you one of the peple who do not have unlimited data plans on your phone, this new issue in Oreao can result in a massive monthly bill and hence the need for a quick fix.
Android Oreo will be coming soon for smartphones all over the world. The Google Android 8.0 has brought with itself, many new upgrades and features. The new updates include Picture-in-picture mode and battery optimisation among other things.
