Which Communication App is the Most Battery Efficient?
When comparing Facebook Messenger, texting, and WhatsApp, which messaging option is the most battery-friendly? Find out the answer.
While it’s true that social media apps like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp can drain a lot of battery, their users are mostly the ones at fault. Now, don’t get all upset! It’s great to text with your friends, send selfies, and share silly GIFs, but these activities do take up a lot of your battery life. The problem with messaging apps is that they run in the background of your phone. Even if you close them when you’re finished using them, these apps never ever stop working. But don’t worry; you can use Memory Booster to close background apps on your device:
How to Save Your Android’s Battery While Messaging
- Change to Power Saving Mode, or manually dim your screen. Contrary to popular belief, Power Saving Mode isn’t only for when your phone is close to dead. You can enable this handy feature whenever you know you’ll be using your Android for a lengthy stretch of time. Power Saving Mode streamlines your phone’s usability, so the screen is slightly dimmed and any features you don’t need are disabled.
- Close unused applications while you text. If you’re leaving apps running in the background while you message friends, that’s a surefire way to drain your battery. These applications continue to eat up energy, even when you’re not actively using them. So, you should close them ASAP with Memory Booster. Things like games, video, social media, and live streaming apps are usually the biggest culprits.
Turn off notifications and disable constant refreshing. As mentioned above, notifications and app-refreshing are a huge battery-sucking problem. For applications like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, you probably don’t need to see every single notification. So, why not turn them off? While you’re in “Settings,” you should consider changing your refreshing and notification options. Since these apps are always updating themselves (hundreds of times a day), they’re going through your Android’s battery levels like small hurricanes.
