Google Hangouts Glitch Causes Messages to Get Sent to Wrong Recipients

Google Hangouts Glitch Causes Messages to Get Sent to Wrong Recipients
 
 

Google Hangouts/GTalk has been infiltrated by a bug. The glitch in the system causes messages to get sent to the wrong recipients. Google is looking into the matter.


It is a crazy situation alright. Several Google Hangouts/GTalk users complained that their messages were being sent to the wrong people. This has caused some very dangerous situations to occur. Internal memos of firms have been sent to past workers who have long since been fired. The whole disaster occurred when users of the previous Google Talk facility employed it in order to hook up with consumers at the new Hangouts service. 

What this means is that it could be a teething trouble that will go away on its own. The selfsame thing happened at Skype in 2012. The issue is therefore with the chat service of Google. And it has to be put right by whatever means. 

A backlog of complaints is being sent via Twitter and Google’s product forums. The mismatch of messages could not only prove embarrassing but extremely hazardous in case of vital information regarding bank accounts. Personal details could get in the wrong hands thanks to this big mistake at Google. 


The problem began to make its presence felt today and has continued without any abatement. It is basically an issue having to do with confidentiality. Google is seriously trying to fix the glitch. Its team has expressed their apologies for the inconvenience and said that they are doing all they can to allay the fault.
