The last few days I see that Play Music is draining my battery at an alarming rate. Does anyone know how to fix this?
It's been only one and a half hour and I am down to 80 percent already
I have attached the screenshots below

Maybe it's trying to cache offline. Check your play music settings

It doesn't look like it based on the amount of data received.
The best bet would be to force stop it and clear the cache though. Usually if there's a misbehaving app, that'll fix it.

Greenify it. Well, it's a system app, so you'd need to be rooted.

Or just disable it completely in settings/apps.... And use a music app from the play store.
