This Google Assistant Bug Will Run Out Your Battery Quickly

Google hasn’t given any detail related to the problem yet, so no one can tell when an update to fix this will be rolled out. 

Recently, many users have found out a new problem related to the Google Assistant on their Android devices. As reported, the common wake-word “Ok Google” has wrongly waked up unexpected devices then left the screen on, which would drain the battery as a result.

More Than 1000 Google Assistant Recordings Leaked

Specifically, once Android users command the phrase “Hey Google” to call out the digital assistant, it will stay turned on indefinitely. This bug results in a slew of potential issues, including the severe drain of battery and even permanently damaged screen. More seriously, no matter how users tried to power off the screen, nothing happened to solve the issue. The phone’s battery thus would run out in a very short time period.

A report conducted by Android Police said the bug was first revealed in September after being discussed on support forums of Google. Especially for Pixel smartphones and Google Home devices, it has become particularly troublesome, despite the fact that the exact reason behind it is still unclear. Note that Google hasn’t given any details related to the problem yet, no one can tell when an update to fix this will be rolled out.

A strange thing is that the bug doesn’t appear all the time. According to the report mentioned above, Google Assistant works properly many times but it also malfunctions in a number of other situations. At this time, all you need to do is to limit the use of the Google Assistant as soon as possible. In addition to Android devices, the OnePlus 6T had reported seen the same problem.
