Your smartphone is capable of just about anything via an app, but unfortunately heavy app use can also result in quick battery drain. This is especially true with VoIP and messaging apps due to the very nature of how the app works and the part of the device it accesses (audio and network traffic).
However, don’t let this deter you from relying on your favorite apps! We all enjoy VoIP because it cuts out voice and SMS costs completely, and allows us to easily switch to Wi-Fi if desired. Communicating internationally is also significantly cheaper, because you don’t have pesky voice and SMS roaming charges to deal with. Plus, it’s hard not to love the addition of gifs, stickers and memes. How could we ever go back to plain old MMS and SMS?
By taking a proactive approach to managing your VoIP apps, you can minimize battery drain and still message as much as you want. Check out this helpful article from Lifewire with tips and tricks for better battery life while using VoIP.
