Bug in Android Oreo: Using Mobile Data Even When Wi-Fi Turned On
Google New Android Version Oreo has recently reported with a Bug. One of the Reddit user has reported,
"Using mobile data and wifi at the same time with Oreo might bypass WiFi and only use mobile data:
After updating to Oreo last night, I received a huge spike in data usage, all the while being connected to WiFi. I contacted support and was told that they are aware of the issue and are working on a fix. In the meantime I have turned off mobile data while at home, so only WiFi is being used."
So according to the above post, user has reported the issue to Google and in response to that, Company said they are aware of the Bug and working on a fix that makes Android 8.0 Oreo phones prefer Mobile Data only.
Currently only few Android users will be affected because Oreo is currently available as OTA for Pixel and Nexus phones as well as Verizon's Pixel and Pixel XL devices.
Currently users need to turn off their Mobile data to make sure their device is not consuming any mobile data unnecessarily.
