After the many problems with Bluetooth caused by Android 8.0 Oreo, now some users are finding problems with WiFi. Specifically, with the use of mobile data while connected to a WiFi network.

Unexpected mobile data charges in Android 8.0 Oreo

Some Android have the function of alternating between mobile networks and WiFi depending on which is the best connection. But, in one way or another, Android Oreo is causing problems with this type of connections. To be exact, it would be causing exorbitant consumption in connections to mobile networks when we are connected to a WiFi network.

This is a problem when the vast majority of users have limited mobile connections. Some users pay for how much they use mobile networks, and others are left with a slow connection when they reach a limit. This exorbitant expense would cause users to have to pay more on the invoice at the end of the month, or for a month with a slow connection.


A Reddit user affected during the night would have contacted Google to ask, and the customer service team says they are working on solving the problem. Other users claim to have suffered while watching YouTube videos.

Meanwhile, the best solution to ensure – if we are in Oreo – is to turn off mobile data while we only use WiFi.
