If music apps on your Galaxy phone or tablet are not allowed to run in the background, your audio may stop if the phone or app goes to sleep. Whether you’re streaming music from third-party apps like Spotify, using Samsung earbuds, or listening directly to audio files on your phone, you’ll need to update your sleeping apps settings to prevent this from happening.
This audio stopping can happen due to entering the power-saving mode, or the music application version has become unstable, which may occur after the update. To fix it the music player keeps pausing automatically, the following troubleshooting will help you.
