To fight against the pandemic, one of the tools at our disposal comes in the form of an application, or rather applications. Following the side-by-side work between Google and Apple by launching a tracking system thanks to a new API, we have seen different applications arrive, some of which are currently experiencing problems.
At least that’s what they quote in The Verge, where they say that since Google is investigating a possible problem
CoronaMelder and NHS COVID-19
These are problems generated by Android apps that use the exhibition notification system in order to track and control the spread of COVID-19. In the two apps that have been affected so far, a crash is generated that causes them to take longer to load or perform regular exposure checks.
The NHS COVID-19 app used in England and Wales, as well as CoronaMelder in the Netherlands, are affected. When a user wants to use them, find out how the screen freezes the charge in the notification area
“We are aware of an issue affecting Android applications developed with the Android exposure notification system. Our engineers are investigating the issue.”
The “Show Notifications” can be found in the “Settings” and once inside in the “Google” section. When you click on “COVID-19 Exposure Notifications” you will see that the tab is enabled and if you click on the three dots at the top right you will see the option “Exposure checks” to be able to see the latest checks to find out if you’ve crossed paths with someone with COVID-19.
For the moment only these applications were affected, but it is to be expected that apps from other countries that also use the Android exposure notification system will be affected.
