18 Sep Google Apologizes for Changing Android Battery Settings Without Consent
Google recently apologized to Android Pie users after it had remotely changed the battery settings on their devices without their consent.
Aside from delaying notifications, the battery saver can also stop location services when the device is not in use.
The search giant recently took to Reddit to clarify the issue, saying that it had mistakenly ran an internal test to more users than it intended, but had already rolled back the settings to default.
Tech commentator Kate Bevan said that while Google’s intention might be good, it is still a matter of transparency and consent.
