Reporting bugs

Thank you for your interest in Android! You can help improve Android by reporting issues and feature requests in the Android Issue Tracker. The Android Issue Tracker contains a list of pending technical tasks across a variety of topics, information relevant to those tasks, and information about progress on those tasks, including which ones might get worked on in the short term.

Issue Tracker isn't a customer support forum. For support information, see the Pixel or the Android help center. Support for other devices is provided by the device manufacturers or by the carriers selling those devices.

Support for Google apps is through Google's support site. Support for third-party apps is provided by the app's developer, for example through the contact information provided on Google Play. For a list of more Android support resources, see our Community page.

There are no guarantees that any particular bug can be fixed in any particular release. To see what happens to your bug after you report it, read Life of a bug.

Filing a bug

  1. Search for your bug to see if anyone has already reported it. Don't forget to search for all issues, not just open ones, as your issue might already have been reported and closed. To help you find the most popular results, sort the result by number of stars.
  2. If you find your issue and it's important to you, star it! The number of stars on a bug helps us know which bugs are most important to fix.
  3. If no one has reported your bug, file the bug. First, browse for the correct component, such as Framework or Networking, and fill out the provided template. Or select the desired bug queue from the tables below.
  4. If you are a device manufacturer and have the build fingerprint from the affected device, include that string in the bug.
  5. Include as much information in the bug as you can, following the instructions for the bug queue that you're targeting. A bug that simply says something isn't working doesn't help much, and will probably be closed without any action. The amount of detail that you provide, such as log files, repro steps, and even a patch set, helps us address your issue.

Bug queues

The Android Issue Tracker has a variety of subcomponents in a number of categories related to Android. There are subcomponents for security, the platform, Android Developer Tools, documentation, and more.


If you find an issue that impacts the security of Android or components in Pixel devices, file a bug using the instructions in Reporting security issues. Additionally, security bugs are eligible for the Android Security Vulnerability Rewards Program.


If you find an issue that impacts an aspect of the Android platform, file your bug in one of these components.
