    To actually test your reported experience I've left the Google beta test and have installed the public version. After installing the public version I cleared the cache and rebooted the phone while on the charger to start with a clean slate. So time will tell.
    Weekends aren't the best days to compare since I'm not working and do spend much more time using the phone than on weekdays.
    That's a good test. It's interesting, because so far in my testing, and my batter stats my Google app is using less battery than the beta version did.

    Actually I was mistaken. It's Chrome that is the battery hog, not Google.
    During the work week the biggest battery drain (ironically) are phone calls. Since I work from home my Pixel 4a is my work phone as well as personal. I have Google Fi and use wifi calling exclusively while at home. So Monday will start the real test.

    you know, I noticed that as well. I disabled chrome as well. I’m trying out brave browser as well. Seeing how that browser does on battery power.

    I'm not going to disable Chrome because I use it on my laptop and my computer at work. I'll just live with the battery drain since its been on my phone from day one.

    I did that on both my phones. Moved from chrome to Brave. There was not much difference in battery use but Brave is faster and stops tracking and ads. For that I prefer it.

    Yeah, I’m noticing that as well as far as the ads are concerned. The only slight issue that I might have with brave is that chrome has the password auto fill feature. I know that brave has that feature as well, however, all of my information is in chrome already. Im still using brave for the moment now though.

    Yeah, I mean I know that I can't have it both ways between Brave browser, and Chrome. I'm still using Brave for now though.
