When using a mobile device such as a smartphone, tablet, smartwatch, etc., users often encounter frustrating situations when the device runs out of battery charge. This disclosure describes techniques, implemented with user permission, to employ a virtual assistant to perform user-permitted tasks in case the device runs out of battery charge. The status of the remaining charge of the battery of a user’s device is determined. If the device is likely to run out of battery charge prior to one or more upcoming tasks, the user is provided a user interface to selectively permit a virtual assistant application to perform one or more of the tasks on behalf of the user.
