Google MicDrop

Google has since removed the button and says a glitch caused some unexpected issues.

"It looks like we pranked ourselves this year," it said in a statement.

"Due to a bug, the MicDrop feature inadvertently caused more headaches than laughs. We're truly sorry."

Google did add that users were able to use the 'undo send' function within a certain time period.

Maybe have a rethink for next year, Google!
