Google is making a move to fix bugs involved on Android OS for smartphone users who earlier complained on technical glitches with regards to handling SMS messages.
The defects made the Android operating system mishandle text messages, and sometimes unintentionally send to message recipients without the user’s consent and knowledge, which could expose sensitive information to other phonebook contacts.
To resolve the issue, Google eventually assigned a team of software engineers to handle the keyed out glitches, including the unintentional message sending, and a Messages application bug that presents wrong SMS content when selecting messages.
The U.S. Internet giant urges Android smartphone users to make sure with opened messages, and the company believes these defects, are isolated cases only, especially the unintentional sending of messages to wrong recipients.
Google said a future fix will be released over-the-air (OTA) for its own Nexus One and Nexus S smartphones, whereas other Android-powered smartphones will just have to wait a little longer until its manufacturers introduces the patch.
The advantage for Android is that all OS-related software updates coming from Google are separate, which is not the case for Apple iOS where updates require downloading of entire mobile operating systems.
Google, however, did not disclose as to when the fixes are available, but only admitted the presence of such issue to let users know of the glitch.
