Google Search application has got the new feature which includes the availability of Google Cards. These cards can serve many purpose, like telling you the weather and always keeping the route between your location and home location. But for all these features they actually use your location information all the time.
Few days I just saw that the location services icon was being by some application all the time, even if I am not using that application or even if my phone is locked and inside my pocket. The screenshot of the same has been mentioned below. Actually this was the bug in this application which has been recently taken care of.
If you face anything like this again then, Open the Google Search application and then scroll down to the last options available there.
You can will see a Location Services based icon, on tapping which you will be taken to another screen where you will have the option to turn off this location reporting feature which continuously uses the GPS data and thus monitors you all the time to show you the latest and the most updated information available on the Google Cards.
Follow these steps to get rid of the extra usage of your battery and please let us know if you face any problem while dealing up with this tip.
