Google Pixel owners have reported widespread battery drain issues following a recent weekend update to the Google app. The problem is affecting at least the Google Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 7, and 7 Pro, with users reporting that their phones become very warm and experience serious battery drain.
The main culprit appears to be the Google app, according to the Android system's report, while some users also report Android System Intelligence as an issue.
Despite attempts to fix the problem by rolling back to an earlier version of the Google app or performing a factory reset, users are still reporting battery drain issues. This has led to speculation that the problem could be server-related. So far, Google has not commented on the issue or provided any information on a potential fix.
The company has yet to confirm whether the issue is widespread or isolated. Meanwhile, some users have not experienced the problem on their Pixel 6 and 7 devices. It remains to be seen how Google will respond to the issue and whether it will affect a wider range of devices.
