UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Since the last update of WhatsApp, many users complain that the application empties the battery very quickly from their phone. The origin of the problem is not yet known.
Owners of OnePlus and Xiaomi, but also other phones running Android, have complained that the WhatsApp messaging application is emptying the battery of their smartphone too quickly. These remarks appeared on Reddit, forum of OnePlus, or Twitter, coincide with the exit of the last update of the application.
On the OnePlus forum , many complaints have been published on the subject. One of the Internet users says that he fell asleep with 87% of the battery and that when he woke up, only 66% remained. Other users have posted screenshots on Twitter that show that WhatsApp is responsible for much of their battery consumption.

On Reddit, a user says that his phone tells him that WhatsApp has emptied his battery since the application was “actively used” while the user claims to have opened it for a minute. “It coincides with the update of WhatsApp I installed on my phone – the one with the fingerprint unlock,” he wrote on the site.
The latest update of WhatsApp improves the security of the application. It allows users to display private conversations only when the phone owner identifies with their fingerprint, even if the phone is unlocked.
Until now, it seems that owners of iPhones and iOS devices are spared this problem. WhatsApp has not yet officially communicated and therefore no solution has yet been proposed.
