Spotify was working fine before the most recent updates. I have a Samsung galaxy s6 phone. Now it stops in the middle of a song. I've tried to uninstall and reinstall. I've tried to uninstall some other apps. Ialso tried to take out gapless but nothing seems to work. What is going on?
Your suggestion didn't help because Android updated the whole Samsung Galaxy s6 phones. When I click on the battery icon, I click on Customize and I get the estimated battery life. What else do I have to do to get Spotify to work without stopping? It's not the only app that has this problem too.
Your first screenshot shows the screen for setting Medium power management options. Underneath it you can see a list of apps which haven't yet been included in android "doze". You can scroll that list of apps by dragging them up and you'll see "Unmonitored Apps" at the bottom. Touch that and a new screen listing all unmonitored apps will open. At the bottom you'll see "+ add apps" and touching that will enable you to add Spotify to the unmonitored apps.
If you still can't work this out, I'll post screen captures of the entire process.
I can't get back to that screen for some reason. When I click on the icon I get the optimization. How do I get back to that screen? Also, I looked at that screen in question, and I don't see anything. First, I do need to know how get back to that first screen and then the apps part. Plus, Spotify is not the only app on Android where I play audio or video and stops in the middle after the most recent updates.
