Google has rolled out a new software update created to boost the accuracy of battery life estimates on Pixel smartphones.

In particular, Google has improved the battery level assumption by the smartphone.

Needless to say, that's not a very accurate assessment. I hope you will find this feature as helpful as I have; I can now appreciate my favorite fluffy creatures and still know whether my phone will last through dinner with friends,"the company further wrote".

The Google Pixel 2 comes with a non-removable Li-Ion 2700 mAh battery, while the XL version has a 3520 mAh battery.

The new trait is aimed at Pixel users for nowadays, but we can expect it to dribble down to more Android appliances in the prospect. Also, the battery settings menu will give an accurate estimation of the amount of time that you can use your smartphone without charging it.

To improve on these crude estimates, Google now uses software on each Pixel device which learns how the owner uses that device's battery power over time. In a nutshell, the Smart Battery feature takes into account the variations in the usage patterns and thus predicts the remaining battery life.

"To fix this, we built an on-device model that evaluates how you use your phone's battery over time".

To get an assessment of high and low control by the new Smart battery feature, clients can tap on the full-size battery symbol which will then illustrate distinctive user prototype for battery usage.

Long-pressing the Battery icon displays "Advanced battery usage", which shows a graph of estimated battery life, including the number of hours since it was fully charged and hours before the battery will be fully depleted. The personalised battery estimate will be displayed under the "Battery" section.
