Google is reportedly working on a new feature that will allow Android users to check their battery health. The search giant’s rival, Apple, already has a dedicated Battery health feature for its iPhones.

Google May Introduce Battery Health Feature

For those unaware, with the latest Pixel Feature Drop update for December 2023, Google has already added a “battery information” page under the About Phone section in Settings for Pixel users. This page offers information like the manufacture date and the cycle count of the device’s battery.

Not just this, the search giant also brought several new features in Android 14, which provide more helpful information on the phone’s battery, such as the date of first use, charging policy, charging status, and current state of health.

While the above features sound interesting, Google plans to go even further with a dedicated “battery health feature” page. This hidden page was discovered by Android expert Mishaal Rahman in the latest version of the Settings Services app of Android 14 QPR2 Beta 2 build that lets users know the condition of their device’s battery.

In an article written for Android Authority, Rahman said that the new battery health page currently does not show the actual state of health but does warn that “batteries degrade over time and last fewer hours between charges.”

Further, the report states that “strings within the APK suggest this page will show you the “estimated percentage of charge the battery can currently hold compared to when it was new” (i.e. the state of health) before and after “recalibration” of the battery.”

In addition, the report also notes that the Settings app will send “tips” to the user when their battery capacity is getting degraded or cannot be detected so that they do not have to check the “battery health” page manually. This will make it easier for the user to track the battery life on their Android device.

The battery health feature is currently under development, and there is no official confirmation of when it will be rolled out to Android users.
