I want to allow a certain application to run on background even in power saving mode (because I need timely notifications). I guess the only (?) way to do it on Android 7 is: Settings -> Device Maintenance -> Battery -> Unmonitored Apps -> Add app. But if I add the app there, I cannot check any more how much battery it's consuming! Which is very unfortunate, because if I let this app consume precious battery power, I want to know how much it consumes.
- Is there any good reason why is it designed this way? Seems kind of unfortunate to me but perhaps I don't have full picture. I had also other strange [problems with "Unmonitored apps"].(Cannot add gmail to unmonitored apps (battery usage) to get notifications in battery saving mode)
- Is there any possibility to monitor the App's battery usage while not restricting it in Power saving mode?
I have Android 7.0 on Samsung Galaxy S7.
