‘Weirdest glitch’ found in Google’s Search and Assistant apps

An Android user on Reddit has discovered an unusual glitch in Google’s Search and Assistant apps, making SMS text messages appear when certain search terms were entered.

Typing “the1975..com” and “izela viagens” into the apps has been making Android phones display a person’s text messages.

Google believes this is a “language detection bug” that was being fixed and announced that it will be distributed within a few days.

The person that discovered the glitch said: “It’s the weirdest glitch I have ever come by”, according to Bloomberg.

Samsung, HTC, OnePlus, LG, and Huawei have reported that they also saw a list of their text messages when entering the search terms.
