Posted by TechRadAR on Tuesday, December 21, 2017 03:03:23 Google is working on a fix for the Android bug that has been causing a large number of users to get a ‘ghost’ battery for up to several hours after an update.
Android devices have to install the Android 7.1 Nougat update to fix this issue.
Google has announced the fix in a blog post today.
Users can head over to Settings > About phone to enable the bug-fixes option.
It will bring Android 7 to the back button for a second time, and it will no longer reset the device when you switch the phone to sleep mode.
Users who are experiencing this issue will also be able to restore the Android Nougats software back to stock.
Google also announced that it will update its Android software for devices that have had their update to Android 7 since December 9.
Google’s blog post does not offer any details on when or how long users will be able see their devices’ software updated, but it says it will be done by the end of January.
The update will also enable devices to boot from an SD card and will fix a few other bugs in the software.
Google has released the full changelog for Android 7 NougAT, which includes the fixes that are included in this new update.
