Google Play Update Fixes Battery Drain


A new update for the Google Play Store has rolled out today, fixing some bugs that came to light after the update to, version 4.1.6, which appeared the night before Google I/O.

Version 4.1.10 will give some Android users better battery life by fixing a Google Play Services location bug which drained some users’ batteries, and provided inaccurate location data.
The update started rolling out today, but could take a few days to reach all users.
The update landed on my device today but as yet I’ve not noticed any savings on the battery. If you’d like to install it manually, click the source link below to find a copy of the .APK available for download.

Have you had any battery issues since the previous Play Store update, 4.1.6? Let us know.
