Last week, Google’s quarterly feature drop added new widgets and home screen customization among other updates. Unfortunately, as with several of the last Pixel Feature Drops, the latest build appears to be causing battery drain, connectivity and overheating issues for some users. 

A slew of Google Pixel owners posted on both Reddit and Google’s own support forum over the weekend about seeing their phone’s battery draining faster than usual after the update. The issue is so bad that, in some cases, users say their phone’s battery can’t last through the day without needing a charge by the afternoon or requiring a charge multiple times a day. Some report their battery life appears to be draining more quickly even when their phone is sitting idle.
