There are operating system and application errors that are less serious. Now this is not the case. Apparently, is this a bug in Microsoft Teams preventing emergency calls from being made on the Android operating system? This is complicated as it can make serious situations worse in and of itself.
Bug in Microsoft Teams prevents emergency calls
This situation occurs in the USA and was detected in a Pixel 3 in this particular case. One user urgently needed to call 911 and found that he could not. In any case, Google is aware of this problem and says that a solution is on the way.
A discovery at the worst possible time
Anyone who discovered this error did it at the worst possible time. The grandfather had a heart attack and the grandson tried to call emergency services quickly. Well then he realized he couldn’t. It rang once and then the smartphone was in a kind of locked state. It was possible to access the apps, but a call got stuck in the background.
Shortly afterwards, Google confirmed the existence of this error and was able to reproduce it under certain circumstances. Apparently, it all comes down to an interaction between Teams and the Android operating system, but only under certain circumstances. In other words, it affects whoever installed the Microsoft app but didn’t enter the data.
In any case, Google will soon release an update to the operating system to alleviate this problem, but so will Microsoft.
However, Google does advise people who have Teams installed to sign in. When it’s done there won’t be a problem.
There is no start window for the new version yet. However, it is expected to be the case in the coming weeks. That is, before the end of the year. It really is a situation that needs to be resolved quickly.
