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?
