We recently reported that Google has missed out on adding the month of December in Android 4.2 People app, which means that you cannot add birthdays for contacts born in the last month of the year. And it is not that Google has just missed out on December in 2012. There is no December in Google’s app at all.
Well, as prompt as Google is in releasing Android updates, the company has officially recognised the December bug in Android 4.2 and assured its users that the problem will be resolved soon.
According to reports, the company will be releasing an over the air (OTA) update for the bug. The company stated in the announcement: 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.
The most surprising part is that the bug went unnoticed by many. And the few who noticed admitted to have reloaded to fix the problem, which obviously did not help.
