- The Pixel’s Adaptive Charging feature no longer requires you to set an alarm.
- The feature now reportedly works “based on your cycle.”
- Google has yet to update its support page to explain how the feature works now.
The Pixel uses a few tricks to help maintain the health of your phone’s battery. One of those tricks is the Adaptive Charging feature which requires you to set an alarm before it can be used. However, that requirement may now be gone based on a report.
If you’ve never used Adaptive Charging, it’s a smart feature aimed at prolonging the longevity of your battery. It works by steadily charging the phone overnight and holding the charge at 80%, waiting until around the time you wake up to fully charge the device. The feature has been around since 2020.
