OnePlus clarifies OnePlus 7 Pro weird notification was just a mistake

01 July 2019 0

OnePlus accidentally pushed a couple of cryptic notifications to some OnePlus 7 Pro users. However, OnePlus was quick to clarify that this was a mistake and happened during internal testing.

One of the notifications included a string of gibberish consonants and the other what appears to be Korean or Chinese characters. Users were obviously confused and took to social media to cross check with others.

Some panicked and were in an image that some unwanted activity might have plagued their devices, some found it funny, and some were surprised by this mysterious message. It should be noted that these puzzling notifications appeared on some of the OnePlus 7 Pro devices only.

OnePlus via its Tweet clarified that OxygenOS team accidentally sent out a global push notification to some OnePlus 7 owners. And, also assured that it’s looking into the matter and investigating it, and will soon share what actually went wrong.

Soon enough, OnePlus also issued an official statement, in which it mentioned that the error occurred while testing software for the upcoming Android Q 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 also assured users that notifications are harmless and they don’t indicate any threat to personal data. “We are immediately implementing new processes to ensure this cannot happen again.”

Well, it’s great that the Chinese company took immediate action on it and clarified to the users about the mistake, otherwise, users would have stayed completely baffled and oblivious to this situation.
