'Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha': OnePlus mistakenly sends global push notification
Mumbai : On Monday morning some OnePlus 7 Pro owners may had received some cryptic, indecipherable notification on their handsets. An internal test by the company resulted in two global push notifications, with one message reading “hahahahaha” in Chinese and the other a string of gibberish English.
While some users believed that their smart phone has been hacked, others categorised it as a 'spam' message. To clear the confusion, OnePlus has released an official notification accepting that it was a minor glitch from their end.
During an internal test, our OxygenOS team accidentally sent out a global push notification to some OnePlus 7 Pro owners. We would like to apologize for any difficulties, and assure you that our team is currently investigating the error. We’ll share more information soon.— OnePlus (@oneplus) July 1, 2019
Meanwhile, another statement on the OnePlus forums gave a little more detail behind the botched messaging. “The push messages occurred while the OxygenOS team was conducting a software test for the upcoming Android Q system update. Due to an error during the testing process, we accidentally pushed a routine test message to some of our OnePlus 7 Pro OxygenOS users.”
OnePlus went on to say it wanted to “reassure that this incident does not indicate any risks for your personal data” and that it was working to making sure a similar incident never happens again.
While, the notifications may have scared many, we can just 哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈哈 at OnePlus’s hbgchjgvchjg hbgchjgvchjg cock up.
