Google officially rolled out the final version of Oreo two weeks back. The release of any major operating system usually includes several bugs that need fixing, and Oreo is no exception. According to a report by 9 to 5 Google [VIDEO], the software comes pre-loaded with an issue that enables the use of Mobile Data even when the handset is running perfectly fine on Wi-Fi.

Additionally, the bug even disables mobile data usage when users exceed their data limit. This forces apps that don’t even require mobile data to work and to stop functioning normally. This feature has been purportedly added by Google to help consumers save money.

The new OS is dubbed as the user-friendly with a number of new features. Android Oreo will compete with Apple's newly launched iOS 11.

Users post complaints

According to a report by Gadgets 360, this issue has cropped up in the Oreo update. That means, only those smartphones that are currently running on Android Oreo are facing this trouble. The list is not large, as it only includes Pixel and Nexus devices. Several Pixel and Nexus smartphone users took to Google’s official forum page to post complaints regarding this matter. They stated that their handsets were disabling mobile data for apps that are actually marked as zero-rated data by smartphone carriers.

When Google announced its Oreo software at its I/O conference in May, they mentioned a similar feature. At that time, the company said that it is designed to disable mobile data when consumers reach their data limit (of their respective plans).

This feature has especially been introduced by the search-giant with the objective of preventing users from eating up a lot of data. This can potentially cost consumers a lot of money.

Mobile data runs out

One particular Pixel user who goes by the name of Hugo David Erazo, made a post on Pixel User Community. His posting received the most attention. In the post, he mentions that he has the kind of plan that even when his data runs out, apps like WhatsApp and his carrier portal will work perfectly fine.

After he installed Oreo, he keeps getting notifications that he is running out of mobile data. The software also automatically disables his apps like WhatsApp. This is truly causing him frustration. Pixel Community manager, Orrin responded to his post by saying that Google is working on fixing this issue. He announced that the company [VIDEO] will soon come up with a solution.
