There’s nothing more frustrating than listening to your favorite song, and then the music stops when you open Facebook. Why does it happen? What is going on? How can we make this stop happening? If you have been going through the same situation, then let us help you out with some information that could help you restore peace of mind. The reason why music stops when you open a new app is that they are all running in the background of your phone. When apps run in the background, they take up memory space and resources which may affect performance if there are too many apps doing so at once. To avoid this from happening again, here are a few things you can do to keep your memory and resources balanced so that you won’t have to deal with these problems anymore.
Why Does My Music Stop When I Open Facebook?
There is no way to know if your phone can handle the load of all these apps that you have running at once. It’s up to your phone’s OS (operating system) to determine how much space and resources it needs to keep an app running in the background. If there are too many apps in memory, then your phone can’t keep all of them running at once and will stop running some of them. The solution is very simple: make sure that you always close all apps when you are done with them. This will prevent apps from staying in memory and, therefore, prevent your phone from shutting down or having problems with performance.
Stop Apps From Running in the Background
- Open the Android Device Manager. You can do this by going to your Apps menu, then clicking on the Settings button, and then clicking on the Application manager tab. This will open a list of all the applications that are currently installed on your phone. In this list, you will see one called Background process (Android). Tap on it to bring up a popup window that will allow you to stop certain processes from running in the background.
- Tap on Stop Running in the Background under All Processes to stop all apps from running in the background at once.
- Turn off Auto-start for Apps. This is a feature that allows apps to run automatically when you first start your phone or tablet and stay active as long as they are opened until you manually close them again. If you have auto-start turned off, then all apps will not start immediately when you turn your phone back on after it has been shut down or if it is restarted for any reason. To turn off this option, tap on the Auto-start for Apps button.
- Tap on the Settings button at the bottom of the screen and then tap on Apps & Notifications. This will open a list of all your installed apps.
- Scroll down to find the app that you want to stop from running in the background and drag it to the top of your list of apps. You can also use this feature to remove any apps that you do not need running in the background at all times by dragging them down into this section below All Apps.
- If you have more than one app installed, then you can set each one individually by tapping on it once, then pressing and holding it again until all other options are grayed out and a checkmark appears next to All App Options. Tap on All App Options again to return your phone‘s settings back to normal.
Use Android’s Built-in Task Manager
- Open Android’s Settings.
- Scroll down to ‘Task Manager’ and tap on it.
- You will be asked to grant the app superuser rights, so grant it if you haven’t already done so. This is a security feature that allows apps to run without being terminated by the OS when they don’t have permission to do so (it also prevents malicious apps from running).
- When the Task Manager is open, you will see a list of all running apps on your phone, including those that are not in use currently or have been closed before by you. Tap on one of these and then wipe it off from the list. This will close the app and prevent it from staying in memory when other apps are still running on your phone.
- To make sure that you always close all unused apps, go back to Task Manager and tap on ‘Close unused apps’ at the bottom of this screen. This will close all apps that are running but not in use.
- Repeat steps 1 to 5 above for all unused apps that you want to close.
Turn Off Location Services for Apps You Don’t Need Regularly
- You can easily do this by going to Settings and scrolling down to the “Location” section. From here, you can select Apps that you don’t need to keep running in the background. You can also turn off your location for all apps by selecting “Location” in the main menu and then selecting “All Apps.”
- When you have done this, go back into Settings and select Location Services again. You will see a list of all apps that are currently running on your phone with their locations turned on or off as well as their battery usage (if they are using battery). Scroll down until you find the one that is using too much memory or battery and turn it off.
- Now repeat these steps for every app that is running in the background on your phone.
- So now you have turned off all the apps that you don’t need to have running in the background. You can also turn off your location for all apps by selecting “Location” in the main menu and then selecting “All Apps.”
Disable Unlocking Animations and Rewards
- In the Settings app, scroll down to Apps and tap on the ‘App Info’ option.
- Tap on ‘App Permissions’ in order to view all the permissions that an app has.
- To disable an app’s lock screen or rewards, simply turn off the toggle switch next to it.
- If you don’t want an app to have access to your location information, then simply swipe from left to right and disable that option as well.
- Tap on ‘Advanced’ to view the list of permissions of all apps.
- To disable an app’s access to your camera, contacts, microphone, etc., simply turn off the toggle switch next to it.
- Tap on ‘Clear All’ and wait for the apps to be removed from your phone.
There are so many things that can slow down your phone. If your phone is running slowly, you should take a look at the apps you have installed. You may not need all of them. You should also make sure that your apps are up to date. Outdated apps often use more memory and can cause your phone to run slowly. You can check which apps need to be updated by going to the app store on your phone. Another thing you can do to keep your phone running smoothly is to clean up the clutter. Remove old texts, photos, and videos from your phone. This will help it run faster and use less battery. These tips should help you keep your phone running smoothly and help your apps run as efficiently as possible.
