Android should be ashamed of itself, fixes bug that disallowed 9-1-1 calls

I saw this article late the other day, and finally got around to reading it. It is unfortunately sad that Android had this bug where Microsoft Teams of all apps was part of the culprit of disallowing someone from calling 9-1-1.

The article talks about someone in December who needed 911 because of a situation going on at their home. Luckily, a landline was available and they were able to get the help they needed.

While I tried the emergency calling button a couple of times, I didn’t really need it. Because I had no speech or no idea what it was doing, they called me back. I just said I was doing something with the phone, but everything was fine.

In this Android’s case, there was no call made at all. It could’ve been tragic, and Google decided to wait an entire month to fix it, although the 6 is getting delayed due to other technical problems.

For the full article, Read the ars technica article titled: Google fixes nightmare Android bug that stopped user from calling 911. This can’t be good.
