Battery drain after Pie update?

My battery had been draining faster than it should have before the update but now it's ridiculous  I am at 62% within 3 hours. All I'm doing is streaming Google play music. Any tips?

Same problem here.  I read that restarting might help. Just tried that, but I dont see it did much. I have to recharge twice a day.

I'm having the same issue and it is really ticking me off considering the fact that this phone isn't cheap. Mine goes from 100 to 0 before the end of my 8 hr workday. It used to last until the next morning.

I asked at the Verizon store. They said yes, that happens with Pie.  They said dont leave tabs open. I'm used to leaving a lot open. I was told open tabs will drain even if you close Chrome. However, I've noticed keeping Chrome closed (despite open tabs) does slow the drain. 

Before Pie, I could easily keep as many as 80 open!
