    I'm trying to figure out which app drains more battery power while on standby on the S6.

    Skype or Google Hangouts

    I use both for instant messaging with friends/family/co-workers only. I do not use either app for voice or video chat.

    They should be about equal in terms of battery usage. Skype used to be a battery hog but has since been updated to work in the background with zero noticeable impact on battery life.
