The Android Oreo's developer preview includes an update that will tell which app is draining you smartphone battery- but there is a catch
Google will soon roll out a useful update for smartphone users with its latest version Android Oreo.
The feature centres around one of the biggest complaint points with smartphones- battery drainage.
The Android Oreo 8.1’s Developer Preview adds more punch to your smartphone battery. Revelations on Twitter show that the new version of Android will warn you which of your apps is using up more battery and how.
As per reports, the new feature will allow the user to see a highlighted app at the top with a red warning battery icon, that’s going to tell you which app has been draining the battery and how.
Similarly, another user on Twitter posted about the Fenix app being shown as constantly keeping the device awake.

Once you tap on this battery warning message, it will show you various methods to remedy the issue.
For example, in the case of Tile, one can turn off the location (which, however, defeats the purpose of the app) to save battery if it is running in the background.
