Numerous Reddit and Google support forums reports indicate that many Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 users are encountering problems with fast battery drain and overheating. The issue is believed to be linked to a recent update of the Google app, released on May 12th, as highlighted by Engadget.
While some users have attempted to resolve the problem by reverting to an older app version, this fix only addressed the battery drain issue, leaving the overheating problem unresolved. Similar reports spreading across the internet indicating a widespread occurrence among Pixel device owners.
Some users suspect that Android System Intelligence may be the root cause of the issue. Others have noted a decline in battery life since the May update.
Based on user feedback, it appears that Google is already aware of the problem and is working on a solution. However, reverting to a previous version of the Google app has not proven an effective workaround. The issue seems to be widespread, highlighting the need for Pixel users to keep a charger nearby if they rely on their device as their primary device.
Users eagerly await a resolution to the fast battery drain and overheating problems to restore the functionality and reliability of their Pixel devices.
