    That means that something is running in the background. If you pull down the notification shade it should tell you exactly which app(s).

    in addition to that, WhatsApp n Google play are the usual suspects,


    you can go to settings n deny them that unlimitled background activity🤨

    It is a notification that is supposed to tell you if an app running in the background is draining a large amount of battery. It used to work fine on Nougat or whatever the previous Android version was.

    Now on Oreo it just pops up whenever you're using an app and it's annoying. I think it's a bug. They need to fix it for the next update.

    this is what i needed to hear... well, i just fixed it by scrolling down the top panel as soon as that icon appears... what i did was to scroll left the notification there , choose settings and i believe i chose to stop that notification lol... it was related to gmail... and i still get my gmail notifications and everything... all normal... and that noisy icon just went away... i hope it helps somebody.
