    I just realized you can add apps to the restricted list.

    Hey! I don't see that, when I tap "adaptive battery" in settings. Does it need to be enabled? How do I do that?

    Here's what I see:

    I think you do that app by app in Settings > Apps & notifications > See all apps. Then open Advanced in any app's info page and tap on Battery > Background restriction.

    I've only got one, and it's an icon pack! Android P does not like Moonshine icons.

    Are you saying she did that manual process for 70-80 apps? I thought the feature was performed by your phone automatically, and driven by machine learning? Hence why the other user seemed "sad" that his phone has only identified ~10 apps to restrict, so far.

    I have no idea what KG did, and I don't think JB was seriously sad given his "Haha" at the end.

    All I can tell you is that the one and only app that I have listed as restricted was a result of my 2 XL asking me if I wanted to restrict it.

    I see, ok. I wonder if they have rolled it out differently for different devices. i.e. since I only have the 1st gen Pixel, I don't get these "requests" by the system, automatically identifying apps. And Pixel 2 is smarter so not all of it is manual.

    You can add it, it's in the battery settings of the app. Like if you tap and he an app and hit info, then go to battery and you'll see this.

    You can also check the apps within the adaptive battery screen as well.

    In addition, the screen says this right at the bottom of the list. So you can untick any apps that you don't want restricted.

    Do you restrict all your apps? System apps as well? I'm wondering how my phone will function if I disable my battery hungry system apps like Pixel Launcher

    I'd say you're wise not to restrict battery usage for any system apps or any launcher that you actually use, unless you really want to have a lousy experience on your phone. It is odd, though, that battery restriction is available as an option on even hardcore system apps like Android Shared Library or android.auto_generated_rro__ (to pick just 2). Maybe that availability will change on later DPs.

    Yeah super weird. I still can't get the feature to stay on anyway. Might just have to wait it out til they fix it.

    Oh yeah; and rapid charging is no longer working if not plugged into a genuine Google @$%ing adapter. So that means battery going negative in the car. Thanks for your super thoughtfulness google.
