If you are being hit by the Google Play Services battery drain and need a fix, then you might want to download GServiceFix on the official play store. This app released in the last couple of days, May 23, and the latest version is the first at 1.0.
In a nutshell, GServiceFix is a workaround to help users of the Android 4.4 update find a solution for the battery drain bug caused by Services and the OS. For those of you that don’t know, Services can be found on Android tablets and phones as a background task with the aim of keeping Google’s services updated and in sync.
This week we heard from a number of our readers, including those using Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z, in regard to heavy battery drain and they’ve been crying out for a fix to this problem. The GServiceFix developer, PlayfulGeeks, claims that the app “doesn’t harm the device in anyway” and ratings support this at 5 stars on Google play.
You can see a screenshot for the Google Service Fix app running on a tablet above. One of Product Reviews readers gave the app a try and said, “GServiceFix was perfect for my battery drain problems caused by the Google play services and Android KitKat 4.4”. You can download this app here on Google play and if you do give it a try, then let us know if it solved your issues and what device you’re using.
