You're not alone: ​​the Google app is causing the launcher to request your location constantly

If during these last days you have found the notification “Google Services is using your location” more than once on your mobile, and the icon of the image on these lines in the status bar, you will be glad to know that you are not alone . Apparently, the latest version of the Google app for Android, is causing the launcher of Android devices is constantly requesting the exact location of users, for reasons that are currently unknown.

Everything indicates that it is something that is affecting all types of devices equally, regardless of their brand or manufacturer . I myself have been receiving this notification over the past few days, both in a Google Pixel 2 XL and in a OnePlus 6T, in both cases with Android 9.0 Foot. However, it seems that only happens when using launchers such as Pixel Launcher, Nova, Rootless Pixel Launcher and included in Android One devices. This suggests that it could be an isolated case that only affects those launchers based on the Launcher3 package of AOSP .

Beyond the constant notification, it does not seem that the error is causing any other problem , although a couple of users do report having suffered a higher battery consumption in recent days. It is unknown if it is related, although it seems unlikely.

All those who were thinking of going back to the previous version of the Google app to get rid of the problem , I’m afraid that they will have to think about another solution, given that the “bug” affects both the latest version -8.44.2.21- and the previous -8.39.6.21-. Therefore, we will have to wait for Google to find the cause of the problem and solve it through a new update.
