Following the negative press last week over an SMS bug in Android platform, Google has updated the status of the bug from "Medium" to "Critical."

The Android bug relates to SMS messages, specifically SMS messages being composed with one recipient in mind but which ended up being set to a completely different person in the contacts list. This issue has been ongoing for six months.

For a flagship mobile OS capturing such a big market in such a short space of time, it's taken Google a long time to officially acknowledge this critical issue, a move which could reflect badly on Google’s stewardship of the Android platform.
