There are 3 ways to launch apps-contacts-OkGoogle pages (what is official name of pages?)

Please don't use swipe-to-the-left from right edge for lauching them.
Just use a tap or say Ok-Google.

If you use swipe, your underlying clock is still working underneath.
Time calc.
Bitmap manipulations
Or communicating with companion app using Data API
Or just simple drawing digital fonts
Or various weather/battery/calendar/fittness things

And some apps like Cardiograph may cause silent working of your clock. I dont' know, You dont know, even Google dont know what app will do.
My simple guess is Cardiograph app seems to use OpenGL?

Google unofficially said its not a bug. it may be a feature!

It may be not a big deal, but waste is a waste.

Until this will be fixed, as possible as you can, please use TAP or OK-GOOGLE, not SWIPE.

Am I right in saying you swipe left open the app background apps may work, so?
It is not like I have battery life issues.

Using voice commands to open apps works for me only if I can remember the name of the app I want to open, I often need to find the app shortcut then open it.
