Airbnb accidentally sent a “test” notification to Android users

Airbnb published Android phones worldwide with a notification that read: “Test Dev.” The obvious mistake happened on Wednesday morning, and given how many users there are posting about it on twitterIt seems like very People’s emergency warnings received (via) 9to5google,

While I personally don’t have the Airbnb app installed on my phone, my colleague Cameron Faulkner does, and he got the notification this morning at 3:41AM ET. Tapping in notifications takes you to the Airbnb app but doesn’t do anything else.

You might have received this notification if you have Airbnb installed on Android.

Burger King made a similar mistake last week when it emailed thousands of customers a blank order receipt, saying it was caused by an internal processing problem. The “Test Dev” notification may have been accidentally sent by the developer working on the app, but at least we can say that whatever they’re testing on Airbnb probably works.
