Google's New Smart Battery Feature for Pixel Phones Offers Personalized Battery Estimates

However, with the new smart battery features, the smartphone now has an on-device model based on usage from similar days or times of day to create more accurate estimations of your usage.

"Smart battery" is created to give users better estimates on what to expect from their battery through the day, Google said. "As you might expect, this wasn't always very accurate", a Pixel product manager explained in a blog post.

The simply-named Smart Battery feature is created to give users a better, more accurate and realistic expectation of how their battery will last throughout the day. It's called "Smart Battery", and it aims to provide Pixel users with personalized battery life estimates. If you used a certain amount of battery life in a given hour, the estimate used that to guess your usage through the day.

The new feature is targeted at Pixel users for now but we can expect it to trickle down to more Android devices in the future. "Smart battery" is created to give users better estimates on what to expect from their battery through the day.

This is meant to examine every device's battery lifespan and usage over a limited time period. Using all these data the built-in model will personalize the prediction for how long exactly the battery will go.

One of Android 8.0 Oreo's new features is the new actionable battery menu, which gives you far more details and options than the previous design.

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. Let's say that you've used your Pixel device for several hours.

To get estimates of high and low usage by the new Smart battery feature, users can tap on the big battery icon which will then show typical user patterns for battery usage.
