Reuters – The world’s biggest mobile phone makers have confirmed a major bug that has prevented users from testing apps on Google’s mobile operating system.
Google said on Friday that the issue is the result of an Android 6 update that had been released on Tuesday.
“This update causes a bug that can cause the Android app to become inaccessible,” Google said in a blog post.
“We are working to fix it as soon as possible.”
The bug affects the Android 6 platform, which was first released in 2015.
Google also said that it would be extending the testing period to two weeks.
“If you’re running Android 6 and are experiencing this issue, you can still download the update and test apps,” it said.
“This time the testing duration is limited to 2 weeks.”
The update caused problems for some Android users, including Google employees.
Google employees have said that the fix will be made available to users in a few days.
The problem was first reported by Android Central, which said that users had been unable to test apps on Marshmallow for two weeks after the update was released.
Google has since released a patch for the issue.
Google and Samsung are the only smartphone makers that can now test applications on Android Marshmallow, with Apple and Microsoft unable to do so.
