One of the things we praise about the Pixel 5 in our review is its long battery life, which you can take advantage of if you need quick access to the wireless charger. The new flagship Google device with reverse wireless charging capability is called “Battery Sharing” and according to its support page (found by 9to5Google), this feature will automatically turn on when you plug in the phone.
When the Pixel 5 realizes it’s plugged in via USB-C and it’s charging, Battery Sharing Mode turns on “for a short period of time”;, the support page says. You won’t have to worry about wasting battery life or having to turn it off manually, because Battery Sharing will also turn itself off if it doesn’t sense another Qi-compatible device is using the power. its within 30 seconds. The feature also turns itself off if it knows the device you’re charging, whether it’s a pair of wireless headphones or another phone, is full.
