You have noticed that the battery of your smartphone descends quickly? If you have a mobile OnePlus or Xiaomi, it is possible that it is a problem with the most used messenger service in the world as it is WhatsApp.
WhatsApp is a very popular messenger service, but not everything will be good news and less for those users who have a OnePlus (more than a Xiaomi), although both have terminals affected.
Does the battery problem affect me?
To know if you can really be one of those affected, we will only have to follow the next steps:
- Open settings
- Click on the section Battery.
- Walk into Total consumption o Battery usage.
Yes in the list of applications WhatsApp appears with a high battery percentage and we have barely made use of the application we will be one of the affected users.
From that information, we can know the different applications that consume more in our smartphone and we can even choose to uninstall them to obtain a better autonomy.
Check your version of WhatsApp
It should be noted that this problem is having to do with the version 2.19.308. To know what version of WhatsApp you have on your device, we must follow the following steps:
- Open WhatsApp.
- Click on three points located in the upper right.
- Select settings.
- Enter the section of Help.
- To choose Application info.
Most of those affected have a OnePlus 6, but there are many who also have the same problem with later models.
In the case of Xiaomi, the terminal that has been most affected is the Redmi Note 7 and it is surprising that the battery is also running out to users who have a Google Pixel first generation.
For the moment there is no solution for devices to OnePlus exception, which is upgrade from Android 9 to Android 10 and not even in all cases it is solved.
For the rest of the terminals it will be advisable to be very aware of the next updates of WhatsApp through the Play Store.
What is this problem?
According to the different users, it is an error in which WhatsApp does not close and therefore, still in the background depleting the battery. Although we have opened and closed the application of multitasking continue to consume the autonomy of the smartphone as if we were using the app continuously.
It is not a common error in the messenger service in question, and not even all those who have the same version of WhatsApp are affected, so we must be calm.
Although it is true that it is a very commented error in the different OnePlus channels, so the team of the firm itself already knows that fault, but they have not offered a solution at the moment.
As we say, there are a few hundred users who have reported the error, but cases may increase in the next few hours given the novelty of the problem.
A possible solution to battery drain
One of the options we can try, without guarantee of success, is the following:
- We open settings.
- We enter the section Applications.
- We look for WhatsApp.
- Once inside the app, click on Force Detention.
This is a valid punctual solution for all phones that we can try to see if the autonomy improves. In addition, we must be attentive to the next updates of WhatsApp If the battery of our Xiaomi or OnePlus is running out too fast.
