Facebook Messenger best voip and sip apps

If you’ve been experiencing drastic battery drain issues with the Facebook or Messenger apps recently, then you’re advised to restart them.

Posts regarding the battery problem began hitting online message boards yesterday, with users claiming that the Facebook apps had suddenly started consuming uncharacteristically high levels of battery life.

It appears that these complaints weren’t unfounded, as Facebook’s Vice President of Messaging Products, David Marcus, later acknowledged the issue on Twitter.

Mr Marcus apologised for the problem and stated that it was an isolated incident that has now been fixed.

If you’ve noticed that your phone’s battery is draining faster than normal, restart them by swiping the apps from your recent apps menu and then reopen them. If the problem persists, you might have to reinstall them. Mr Marcus also advised using the official Facebook app, rather than the beta version, if you want the best overall experience (though this recent battery problem affected both).

Let us know in the comments if you’ve experienced this issue and if it has now been resolved.
