A few Android users have complained on Google’s forums that the screen on their phones would flicker and then they would be locked out of their Gmail account on the phone. Google seems to have put this high on their priority list, and understandably so. A Google employee, going by the forum name “BrittanyBee,” had this to say:
Beginning this morning, we’ve received reports of a bug causing some Gmail users on Android to experience screen flickering when they open the app. We are in the process of fixing it and the issue should be resolved shortly. We apologize for any inconvenience.
If you are one of the few experiencing issues don’t worry because things should be back on track in no time. For now users can sign in with the stock Email app in Android to get their emails should Gmail start acting up, it just doesn’t offer the same feature set.
