Android 4.2 Jelly Bean Bug: Omits December In People App
Google launched its Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on Oct. 29, which was rolled out on its Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 devices. Now, per reports the latest OS has a bug, which omits the month of December in the People app (a stock app that is a part of the AOSP).
Users who try to enter an event like birthday or anniversary for the month of December in the People app in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean are unable to do so. Why? Well it seems Google forgot to include December in the list of months. The app reflects only 11 months and November is followed by January.
"Today I was inserting birthday of a friend in my contact list so that I can sync the birthdays in my calendar. I noticed that the December month is missing. When I pressed new event the calendar came but it was not having the option for the month December. I'm using Galaxy nexus running on 4.2 jelly bean which I installed yesterday on 14 November 2012. Please help me with this as I use the calendar a lot," reported a user.
Interestingly, no issues exist in the regular calendar and December is present, which basically means that users can update their appointments.
Google's Android 4.2 has brought with a slew of new features like: faster and smoother transitions, smarter keyboard with Gesture Typing, a new look Google Search, Google Now, simpler accessibility, Photo Sphere camera option, Android Beam which lets users beam and share videos and photos with a simple tap etc.
Google is aware of the issue, but the search giant has not let on when and if a fix will be on its way. Moreover, it is not known how the month was skipped in the application.
