A recent Google app update turns up the heat on Pixel phones
Pixel 6 Pro users report overheating and battery drain issues. Users suspect the Google app and a recent update (May 12th) as the cause
Pixel users are feeling the heat, literally, as they report significant overheating and battery drain issues with their devices.
According to Engadget, a recent Google app update appears to be the culprit, leaving many frustrated and scrambling for a fix.
According to these reports, the Google app is gobbling the device’s battery at an alarming rate, even when the phone is idle.
In a classic case of “damned if you do, damned if you don’t,” users are trying to resolve the issue by downgrading to previous versions of the Google app. But even that isn’t doing the trick like it usually would.
This isn’t the first time Pixel users have faced issues due to software updates
As the Pixel 6 Pro overheating and battery drain saga continues, users are left frustrated and concerned about potential damage to their devices.
With no word from Google yet, Pixel users are left to their devices (pun intended).
Until a proper fix is pushed out, it’s time to break out the portable chargers while you wait for Google’s official word.
