Android Oreo is less than a week old and it is not available for many devices. Google Pixel and Nexus were the first phones to receive the OS, and it will soon become available for other handsets. The new update comes with plenty of improvements and there haven’t been any complaints until now. Many users have reported a bug that hit the latest Android Oreo.
Gmail app affected by a new bug
There have been several complaints regarding the Gmail app. Apparently, Oreo has a bug that does not allow users to sync with the Gmail app. Users talked about this issue on product forums, but also on social media and Google will find a solution for it since there is no resolution so far.
Various sources’ reports also stated that the new bug is clearly affecting the Gmail app. “Gmail keeps running in the background, trying to sync, but failing,” the Android Police reported. Apparently, the app looks like it is syncing, but the new emails do no show up. “The app shows it’s syncing but no mails load,” the Android Police confirms.
According to Droidman “server side change to the Gmail app and not as a separate update.” And no one was able to fix this bug until now. “On the product forums, Google reps advised the users to restart their phones, re-install the app and even to factory reset their devices. However nothing seems to be working as the bug continues to affect exchange users on the app,” Droidman adds.
However, Google is clearly working to solve this. Android Police reports that Google’s “ community manager has posted on both threads to say he’s reaching out to everyone affected to ask for bug reports.” Now we can only wait until Google comes with a solution.
