According to 9to5Google and other users’ reports, there’s a bug in Google Messages app that leaves the camera open in the background. This causes overheating and battery drain, which seems really annoying for users who want their phones to work the whole day without any interruptions.

Why this issue occurs? This Google application has a feature that lets users easily take a picture and attach it to a message. If you want to take a new picture, a live feed is displayed in the camera for you to attach images from the gallery.

Meanwhile, a recent Google Messages update apparently has a bug that leaves this camera feed running occasionally even when the Messages app is in the background, which causes the device to overheat and also lose battery life.

Further, neither Google nor Samsung has acknowledged the issues. However, as it’s a Google app bug, the company should soon recognize it and release the fix. Till then we suggest that if you haven’t updated the application yet, stay on the previous version.

For those who have already installed it and are facing these problems, there’s a recovery method to prevent this bug from draining your phone’s battery. Just deny the Google Messages permission to use the Camera from the App Info menu in the Settings of your phone.
