Multiple OnePlus and Xiaomi users have reported battery-draining of their smartphone on social media. The user reports suggest that the issue has come in the limelight after the Facebook-owned company released WhatsApp for latest version 2.19.308 of WhatsApp earlier this week. The battery bug is affecting users across OnePlus smartphones, including the latest OnePlus 7T series, running Android 9 Pie and Android 10 OS.
As per users’ complaints, WhatsApp has been spotted consuming more than 40% of their battery life. Meanwhile, Whatsapp has added a new feature to its platform such as privacy controls. Using this feature, users can blacklist contacts from adding them to irrational groups.
Besides the privacy controls has added a fingerprint lock options to prevent others from seeing from your chats. This new updated feature is available for both iOs and Android users. Apart from this, WhatsApp has seemingly been working on dark mode. The feature, likely to bring a comprehensive theme makeover to its platform, is supposedly rolling out to beta users across the world.
