Google recently had to face furore from the Gmail users after they complained of the autocomplete feature going complete bonkers. The address autocomplete feature started placing the people who are least contacted on top of the people users were constantly in touch with thus leading to a situation where most users ended up sending the e-mail to the wrong person.

The bug had affected just the web browser and thankfully the mobile client was spared from the debacle. Google had acknowledged the fact that they were very well aware of the problem and were already working to set the things straight.

Word of caution from our end would be to spare a second look at the recipient irrelevant of whether the bug is fixed or not so that users won’t end up in soup after sending wrong mails to the wrong recipient.
