Every time the Extreme Battery Saver is turned on, a notification will be shown so you know it is enabled. It can automatically turn on whenever a device’s battery is low or you can turn it on manually.

Here’s how to turn it on automatically: Settings> Battery> Battery Saver> Set a schedule> then choose a setting whether No schedule, Based on your routine, or Based on percentage.
When Battery Saver and Extreme Battery Saver are enabled, the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a (5G) phones will pause most apps, slow process, and turn off features. Essential apps like Messages, Phone, Settings, and Clock are never turned off even with Battery Saver and Extreme Battery Saver.
