One of the constant complaints of users of Android devices is that the battery does not last as long as they would like. Everything indicates that this deficiency is due to a fault present in the operating system. We tell you what it is and how you can solve it.
The Italian media TuttoAndroid was the one who discovered this annoying mistake. What is it about? Apparently, the Google Play Services update is the source of the low battery.
Version 18.3.82 is rapidly depleting the battery of various equipment, although it is not clear if it happens with everyone or just a few.
To check if your phone has this problem, go to ‘Battery use’ and check if Google Play Services is the app that consumes the battery.
Google is already working to solve this fault as soon as possible, through the next update. But if you don’t want to wait, you can fix it for yourself.
If you have not yet installed the latest update, you have nothing to worry about, and it is best to wait for the next step from Google. But if you have already done so, you will have to start a few steps
The first thing is to make sure if your smartphone has this version. For that you have to go to the applications section of your computer, there look for Google Play Services, or to Spanish, Google Play Services.
Once there, go to ‘App details’ and there you can see which version you have. Remember that the one that presents problems is 18.3.82.
There are two ways to repair it, although you should know that they are not so recommended. The first option is to download the beta version of the application. You have to go to the subscription page and click on the ‘Become a tester’ button. There may be errors, blockages, and unexpected effects.
Another solution to fix it is to return to the previous version of the app. You can download it in this link that is totally safe.
Then go to the applications menu and select the Google Play Services menu. Click on ‘Data usage’ and disable the ‘Background data’ option. The latter will prevent the app from updating itself to the latest version.
Ready, your battery’s performance will last much longer. If you do not want to implement these alternatives, we recommend waiting for the new version to come out.
