A bug in the Google Search app disturbed users from making and receiving calls

Google Search bug
Written by Emma Davis

After the last update of the Google Search app, users of some models of Android smartphones discovered a bug that prevented them from making and receiving calls, according to Bleeping Computer.

While Google is not specifying which device models are affected by this bug, reports from users who reported this issue over the past weekend only mentioned LG devices, including the LG G7, LG G7 ThinQ, LG V40 ThinQ, and LG Q70.

The phone worked fine before the update, no longer worked after the update and works again once I uninstalled the update. The update seems to cause the problem, as stated in my previous review.a user reported.

Users complained that they lost the opportunity to make and receive calls, and only contacting the support service of the telecom operator or deleting the Google application helped.

After the latest update to the Google Search App on Android, the users of certain mobile phones are experiencing difficulty in receiving and making calls.a Google community manager said.

The company has now released an updated version of the app that should help users fix the problem. While most users’ phones will automatically install this patch, those who have disabled automatic updates on their device will have to manually install it from Google Play.

You need to pay much more attention to quality control for your updates so that the next fix/update does not deprive my phone of the ability to make and receive calls.writes one of the affected users.

While some victims confirmed that the update fixed the problem, others had to completely uninstall the app in order for the phone to work as expected again.

Given that the Google Android app has over 5 billion installations worldwide, a certain percentage of users are likely to still suffer even with automatic updates turned on.

To make sure your phone has the latest version, you need to follow these steps to manually update it:

  1. Search for the “Google” app in “Google Play” (or click here).
  2. Click the Update button.
