Google Employee Said That Google Now Does Not Drain Battery Life

After Google Search app was updated with the Google Now service last week, many users began reporting that the app was draining iPhone’s battery by constantly accessing Location Services.

Today Google employee posted on the Macworld forum saying that Google Now service does not excessively drain battery.

“Reports that Google Now on iOS drains battery life are incorrect. We understand people’s concern about seeing the Location Services icon stay on when they use Google Now. Many apps that keep the icon on actually do drain the phone’s battery because they require very accurate location. (For example, some apps have to run your GPS all the time during navigation to keep you from missing your turn.)”

The report goes on by saying that Google Search works differently than other apps, using Wi-Fi hotspots and cell towers to lower battery impact.

The employee also said that they tested Google Now on iOS for several months and didn’t receive any reports of excessive battery drain.
