Google's New Smart Battery Feature for Pixel Phones Offers Personalized Battery Estimates

Google's New Smart Battery Feature for Pixel Phones Offers Personalized Battery Estimates

Using all these data the built-in model will personalize the prediction for how long exactly the battery will go. For instance, if the battery level depleted by 20 percent in the last 4 hours the system would presume that the device will be used in the same manner henceforth. "Your phone looks at your battery usage on similar days and times, and uses that to predict your battery life in a personalised way", Google added.

"To see these predictions for yourself, visit Settings on your phone".

The Google Pixel 2 comes with a non-removable Li-Ion 2700 mAh battery, while the XL version has a 3520 mAh battery. This is really a nifty feature, which needs to be implemented to all brands of phone, not just Android, but also Apple iPhones, as well. An "on-device model" evaluates your battery usage habits day by day to better predict how you'll use your phone and how the battery will be used up.

The new feature is targeted at Pixel users for now but we can expect it to trickle down to more Android devices in the future. The Battery section will reveal both the percentage of battery life remaining and also an estimate of how many minutes this translates to. The Pixel has 2,770mAh battery and is claimed to deliver up to 26 hours of talk time on single charge. However, this doesn't mean that the company has left it's old Pixel users behind.

Mastermind Hafiz Saeed to be Released From House Detention
Again in October, the board had allowed a 30-day extension to the detention of Saeed which will expire next week. The authorities, however, chose to keep Hafiz Saeed and his aides under house arrest under Section 3 of the MPO.

"Smart battery" is created to give users better estimates on what to expect from their battery through the day, Google said.

I think it's safe to say that one of the most important things in a phone is battery life.

To get an assessment of high and low control by the new Smart battery feature, clients can tap on the full-size battery symbol which will then illustrate distinctive user prototype for battery usage.
