Failure to trick Gmail came to cause layoffs and canceled by Google
The April Fool’s Day pranks are in full swing, but one did not work. Gmail now includes a function called Mic Drop next to the “Send” button, which sent a GIF of a Minion dropping the microphone and leaving the stage – a way to say that the response was so good, but so good that there was no one to answer. What could go wrong in an innocent game of Google?
Well, people also use Gmail to handle professional and serious matters. Mic Drop was in the place where normally there the button “Send & Archive”. And after sending and archive as many messages, you start to push the button automatically. The rest you know: some people accidentally answered work emails with GIF Minion, went to sleep and when they woke up, they discovered that they had been dismissed.
“Email is great, but sometimes you just want to hit the eject button. As those hot discussions of work when everyone else is wrong except you (obviously). Or when someone is seeking approval of the group, but your opinion is the only one that matters (right?). Or maybe you just nailed it, and there is nothing more to say (bam!), “Said Google in Mic Drop announcement post.
After starting the Mic Drop, the message with the GIF Minion was sent and the topic was filed; so you no longer would read subsequent responses. In the Gmail help forum, dozens of people complained about the function, some reporting that lost their jobs. A writer who had deadline to meet, sent his articles to be reviewed by the head and did not receive corrections to be made. The chief was offended, and the writer woke upwith a nothing pleasant voice message.
Mic Drop problem besides being very close to the “Send” button, a Google spokesman confirmed to TechCrunch that in certain cases, a bug caused the resource into action in future emails even when the user was not press the catch button.
In the early hours of Friday (1st), Google announced that backtracked and canceled the game Day of Gmail lie. “Due to a bug, the Mic Drop feature inadvertently caused more headaches than laughs. We are very sorry. The feature has been disabled. If you’re still seeing the button, please recharge your Gmail page.”
