    Both devices are fairly new: earbuds and speaker. Using separately and at different places.

    Welcome to Android Central! Those devices are actually powering down, or are they just disconnecting?

    Each device stops suddenly and at the same time, the podcast stops also, so I have to go back to my phone and tap the "PLAY" button to get it to go again, without the device. In each case, the devices are fairly new and each is fully powered.

    Ok, so they're still connected via Bluetooth, but pause on their own? Are you sure it's not the app or the phone that's going to sleep, and not appropriately keeping the app awake to continue playing the media?

    I don't know for sure what is causing it. That's why I need help. If it is the app or the phone going to sleep, how do I correct it? The phone always stays on indefinitely if I play the podcasts over a regular earbud, or just by itself.

    The bluetooth app is simply the one that came with the phone. I didn't even need to download it. And until recently, all parts on all devices were working fine. Something changed, and I don't know what.

    Sorry, what I meant was: can you tell if the BT devices are still connected when things stop? You can tell by going to the Settings>Bluetooth menu, where it should say if the device is still connected. If it is, then it's more likely the app or the phone that's going to sleep. When things seem to turn off after 1 minute, has the screen gone to sleep?
