Pixel 6 phones to receive an update that fixes battery drain issue
Thankfully, Google has been hard at work, pushing out updates that keep things running smoothly.
As you might imagine, having the camera on all the time causes the phone to heat up significantly, and it also drains your battery quite quickly.
If you’re experiencing these issues, the good news is that there are some easy workarounds, despite the annoyance that it’s happening in the first place.
Firstly, you can just close down, the Messages app, but you’ll have to do that after every time you respond to a message – or expect a toasty phone with a dead battery.
A better solution is removing camera permissions from the Messages app, which should prevent the bug from occurring. The obvious caveat being that you won’t be able to take photos within Messages.
So, keep an eye out for app updates, and fingers crossed it’ll be plain sailing from here on out.
