Some Android users may have noticed some strange things happening with their phones over the last couple of days. That’s because Google accidentally rolled out an Android update to more users than intended, which enables the battery saver feature on some phones running Android Pie.
What problems could you face with the battery saver feature enabled?
- Apps might stop updating in the background
- Location services may not be operating correctly on your lock screen
- Push notifications may be delayed
Google has rolled back the battery saver setting to default to those who were affected, so if you’ve been experiencing issues with your Android device over the last few days we suggest updating your device again.
Devices that were reportedly affected include:
- Google Pixel
- OnePlus 6
- Essential Phone
- Nokia 7+
