Android 10/11 Fast Battery Drain & Overheating

Search This thread
May 16, 2008
I've had my Pixel 3XL taking 5 hrs to charge the battery with the screen off, using the supplied charger. CPU usage constantly at 80%+. Temps 43C+ during normal use (not playing games or videos, not encoding whatever)

This has been happening for a couple of months, and today I found out why. I noticed that some music apps (soundcloud, spotify, tunein radio) would have their last played song/station persist in the drawer for way too long, and couldn't be dismissed.
