How to Unlock Extreme Battery Saver Mode on Your Android

Almost all phones these days have a Battery Saver mode to save power when you can’t charge your phone. This mode cuts down on things that use a lot of battery to make your phone last longer.

But some Android phones, like the Google Pixel 8, have an even stronger battery saving mode called Extreme Battery Saver. This mode does everything Battery Saver does, but it also puts most apps on hold and stops them from sending you notifications. The cool thing is that you can choose which apps you still want to get notifications from, so you don’t miss anything important. This can really stretch the life of your battery when it’s running low.

The only catch is that Extreme Battery Saver is a bit hidden. Most people just turn on Battery Saver from the Quick Settings Panel. Extreme Battery Saver takes a few more steps to enable, so you might not have noticed it before.
