The latest version of the WhatsApp messenger received a flurry of criticism from disgruntled owners of Android devices. Users claim that battery consumption in a matter of hours discharges smartphones. Judging by the comments, the Galaxy S9 and S10e, as well as the Pixel 3 and 4 are most prone to “gluttony”.
Application energy consumption reaches 30 percent, which is a lot. Moreover, WhatsApp demonstrates such numbers even with very little use of it. Representatives of WhatsApp at the moment did not respond to hundreds of angry reviews in the thematic forums and the Google Play store.
One way to get rid of the increased “battery” is to upgrade to earlier versions of the application. In addition, they claim that backing up the application also reduces its power consumption.
