Millions of Android users can turn on a setting that will save you from an embarrassing battery drain error
Accidentally leaving the flashlight on is a common smartphone mistake.
This can embarrass people in public and also drain your battery pretty quickly.
Luckily, some lucky Android users can use a widget that sends an alert when a flashlight is accidentally turned on.
The warning will appear on both the home screen and the lock screen.
This could help you avoid an awkward situation such as B. accidentally holding your phone in the subway with your flashlight in a stranger’s face.
To access the feature, you must use the At a Glance widget.
The catch is that currently only certain Android users can access the feature.
Google says: “At the top of your main home screen you’ll find “At a Glance” information.
“For example, you could find the date, the weather, or upcoming events on your calendar.”
It also states: “This feature is only available on Pixel 3 and later.

“The full At A Glance experience is available on Pixel devices running Android version 12 and higher.
“Some features are not available in all languages or countries.”
If you can access the At a Glance widget, you must turn on the flashlight feature manually.
Press and hold At a Glance on your home screen, then click Customize.
Next to “At a Glance” you need to click on “Settings”.
You can find the flashlight setting under “Features” and turn it on or off here.
