Android: App Shuts Down on 2108.1

accuratedude

On Sept14, 2021 Android pushed an update on my phone and now the radio application (and all others) is effectively disabled. Instead of playing music after the screen turns dark, it shuts the application off. This is not supposed to happen and started right after the hour-long update finished. I've got a premium subscription but will have to cancel if the application software is not fixed. Why do they need to update and destroy the most used app on the phone?

Hey, @Chrisbachman. 👋

Thanks for letting us know about this.

When updating the OS on Android devices, the battery optimization on all apps may be automatically turned back on by default. This can cause performance issues or interfere with playback when the app is backgrounded. Due to the sheer volume of Android devices, we are unable to provide step by step instructions for each and every device. I recommend looking up the steps to manage battery optimization for the specific make and model of your device and disable this for the Pandora app.

If you own a Samsung device, you may also want to check your Sleeping Apps settings.

If adjusting your battery / sleeping app settings doesn't help, let's try running through these steps: Android Troubleshooting

Feel free to let me know how it goes, and whether this helps. 🎧

Mine was doing the same thing. Found it under sleeping apps and removed it. That worked.
