[Other] How to Fix the Latest Android Bug That's Draining Your Battery

Hi Mi Fans

Android users: If your phone’s battery has felt like it was crapping out lately, the most recent Google Play Services update may be to blame.

Android Hacks points out that as of version 18.3.82, Google Play Services has eaten up more battery than most apps, topping the usage charts for many users. It’s unclear if this affects everyone or only certain devices, but you can (and should) check your own usage charts by searching for “Battery Usage” in the settings app.

To avoid the Google Play Services battery drain, we suggest holding off on any pending updates until Google has announced an official fix. For those who have installed the latest version of Google Play Services, there are two simple ways to solve this, though neither is ideal.

First, you can download the beta version of the Google Play Services app:

1 - Head to the Google Play Services beta opt-in page
2 - Click or tap “Become a tester”
3 - Wait for the beta version update to push to your phone. Those who do not have automatic updates will need to check Google Play for pending app updates and manually install it once it’s available.

The usual beta software caveats apply: you might encounter bugs, crashes, and unexpected app behavior when using unfinished software. This could be widespread, too, since Google Play Services handles the majority of your phone’s features, including notifications, app updates, and even basic system-level behavior and access to Google apps and services.

The other potential solution to fix the battery-draining Google Play Services is to roll back to the previous version of the Play services app. Fair warning that this, too, may cause some issues with compatibility and app behavior in some rare instances.

1 - Download and sideload the previous version of Google Play Services. Be sure to allow “apps from unknown sources” when trying to install. (APKMirror’s version is safe to download.)
2 - After you’ve rolled back Play Services, go to Settings  Apps & Notifications  See All
3 - Scroll down and tap “Google Play Services.”
4 - Tap “Data Usage”
5 - Disable “Background Data,” which might prevent the app from updating in the background. If that doesn’t work, you can try disabling the Google Play Store app entirely, but that’s going to be inconvenient.

Thanks for your time
