Google looks set to fix a glitch on the Android operating system that sent text messages to the wrong recipients.
Android users have been reporting the fault in the SMS service since June last year, but Google has only recently acknowledged the issue, as well as uncovered a separate bug that causes the wrong message threads to open from the menu.
A member of Google said on the company's forums: "Separately, some users have reported that their SMS messages are being delivered to the wrong people. It took us some time to reproduce the issue, as it appears that it's only occurring very rarely. Even so, we've now managed to both reproduce it and develop a fix that we will deploy."
“While we don’t anticipate any persistent problems, we’ll continue to investigate in case we come up with additional ways to trigger these bugs,” he added.
Google have yet to announce the release for the fix.
