android_m_battery_mahWhen Android 6.0 Marshmallow was announced earlier this year (when it was still known as Android M), one of the changes Google announced that they would be bringing to the operating system would be better battery management. This resulted in a feature called “Doze” in which your Android phone, after inactivity for a long period of time, will basically kill of app refreshes in the background, save for essential apps.

This ultimately trades app refreshes for better battery life. That being said, it really looks like Android 6.0 Marshmallow will have a lot of battery management features, thanks to a report from Android Police who has highlighted that in the latest preview for Marshmallow, Google has added per-app battery usage in mAh to the details.

Now if you’ve ever checked to see which app is using the most battery, you will be greeted by a percentage, which we suppose is a good enough gauge if you’re trying to get an idea of which apps are using the most battery. However by adding details like the exact mAh is being used, it will provide more information to users.

It will save users time from having to mental math and could also be a good way to gauge if your battery is starting to lose its charge. It’s a pretty nifty feature so for all you Android users out there who love micromanaging their handsets and its battery life, this is a feature you can look forward to in the near future.
