    In Oreo for location settings there were 3 different settings to adjust so it would consume the least amount of battery. With pie, I am not seeing this? Is there only one way to set this or leave it off? I've only been on pie since Monday and I know it has to settle in but my battery life has taken a huge hit and this was the culprit with Oreo. I'm on the original pixel

    Thank you

    I'm guessing (who knows with something this new) that Location is just the GPS receiver, and wifi and tower location services, since they're always on anyway, no longer show separately. Just turn location off if you don't need it. (You can try it by going to work or school, turning it off, leaving it off until you get home, then going to Android Device Manager and see if it locates your phone. After about 5 minutes of being home, it should show where the phone is fairly accurately. (Not as accurately as with GPS, but near your home somewhere.)
