Android 4.2 update set to bring back December… by December?

by: Chris SmithNovember 20, 2012

A few days ago we talked about a very strange error that was spotted in Android 4.2, and a huge oversight from Google’s Android team, the absence of the month of December from the People app.

At the time we said we expect Google to pick up the error and provide a fix soon, and it looks like that’s about to happen. Google has officially confirmed the issue on its Android Google+ page and said that a fix will be bringing back December to the People 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.

We have no clear ETA on this update, but we’d expect it to arrive by December, you know, so this particular bug won’t affect upcoming birthdays, Christmas holidays and Santa gift delivery plans.

Any other Android 4.2 bugs you’d like to have fixed?

  • So are they going to call this a new feature?

      Apple move. Not a Google move

        I’m sure the article says this is an issue with Google. Oh wait, everything’s Apple’s fault isn’t it?

          Put your panties back on. He was talking about the “move” that Apple does by calling a defect a feature- although the Nexus 4 not having LTE to “help customers with battery life” doesn’t pass the smell test.

  • BBC iPlayer missing

  • didnt even get this crap yet…when the HELL DOES the sprint L700 get this 4.2 update

    • ratnok

      Nexus or NOTHING.

  • shaurz

    Camera app now crashes when you try to shoot panoramas, it used to work in 4.1 (with the camera launcher).

    • ratnok

      Mine doesn’t. I really like the new Street View version of panorama. It needs a little work in the stitching department, but otherwise, it’s good.

    Jelly Bean? What Jelly Bean?

      Nexus or NOTHING
