Google just flipped Battery Saver on many users’ Pixels


So, this may sound crazy, but about an hour ago I noticed my Pixel 2 XL’s battery saver mode was on. I thought “hmm, weird, I don’t remember touching that setting quick tile but who knows maybe I did by accident”.

Five minutes later my wife texts me and asks me why her “battery icon at the top was circled in red”. Hmm, okay that’s odd.

I go on Reddit (/r/GooglePixel) and I find out that over 100+ people are reporting the same exact thing.

Okay, so I’m a Google homer and all, I admit it. But if they have that level of granular control server-side, it may be time for me to put on the tin foil hat and get a different phone. I’m sorry, but that’s crossing the line.
