Google Will Add a New Power-Saving Mode to Android

I use power saving mode all the time. From the very first day, it is turned on on my Android smartphone all the time, because I do not notice the slightest drop in performance or a decrease in screen brightness, and the autonomy thanks to its increase quite noticeably. I’m not even interested in what kind of changes are taking place in the operation of my smartphone and due to which it cuts out an additional 2-3 hours of work. But Google believes that this is not enough, and therefore decided to implement in Android another way to save battery life.

Google has begun testing a new energy-saving mechanism that works on a completely different basis than before. Unlike the old one, the new one will not underestimate the performance by cutting down the processor clock frequency, lowering the brightness, and in general somehow limiting the operation of the device’s hardware components – at least directly. Instead, it will monitor applications running in the background, freezing them and indirectly limiting CPU and battery consumption.

Despite the fact that the new mechanism will freeze applications, they will not be permanently disabled. From time to time, the system will send them an activation signal to briefly turn on and update the data. Thus, it will be possible to maintain the operation of minimized applications, but at the same time prevent resource overuse. After all, many types of software either do not fall asleep at all in the background, continuing to update, or wake up very often, consuming not only the processor and battery resources but also the RAM.

It would seem that implementing something like this is a logical step for Android developers. However, Google for some reason preferred to rely solely on the Doze system mechanism, which, although it did not freeze applications, still put them in a low power mode. But many manufacturers, including Huawei, have gone beyond the search giant and have long ago implemented a special toolkit that limits the work of background applications, provided that they are resource-intensive.

Applications Crash. What’s the Matter

True, in the case of Huawei and Honor smartphones, such a mechanism is somehow too unreliable. Despite the fact that it really prevents resource overuse, it succeeds solely by unloading heavy applications from memory. As a result, if you launch 20 programs at once and leave your smartphone for an hour or two, then when you return, you risk finding only 5-7, at best 10, programs running. All other applications will simply unload EMUI algorithms due to the load they put on.
So far, Google’s new energy-saving mechanism has been distributed very selectively and only among Pixel smartphone owners. It could be assumed that it will remain their exclusive, but since this innovation was not announced for the Pixel Feature Drop initiative, most likely it will be released as part of the Google Play services update. Another thing is that the standard Android mechanism will almost certainly come into conflict with the shell mechanisms and still will not work on most marathons the way Google would like.
