    I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

    I use "Voice Recorder" (app that came stock on the phone) to record class lectures (1 - 2 hours in length).
    But sometimes, the Voice Recorder will on its own, without warning, and without input from me, suddenly stop recording!
    As a result, I will miss a large chunk of the lecture.

    Voice Recorder could stop after 45 minutes into the lecture, 1 hour and 15 minutes into the lecture, ... - it seems random and it happens without warning.

    I can't figure it out. Why does Voice Recorder suddenly stop recording?

    Thanks if anyone could help?

    Hi, have you checked the settings within the app maybe has time limit that you can change?

    Any power-saving modes turned on, or 3rd party battery-saver or "RAM booster" apps installed? If so, turn them off or uninstall them.

    Also, make sure the Voice Recorder app isn't optimized in the Battery Optimization system setting.

    And make sure you're not running out of internal storage (or external, if the voice recorder is set to record to the SD card).

    Thanks everyone for responding!
    And sorry for posting twice (I came to this section and saw "Ask a question" - but couldn't find where to login).

    I do have enough internal/external storage, but as you guys have suggested, I have turned off battery optimization.

    Will post an update later on whether Voice Recorder still suddenly stops recording.

    Thanks to everyone again!!!

    So after about 2 weeks of classes, I can confirm that after turning off battery optimization for the stock Voice Recorder on my Note 9 - the recordings continue to completion (classes as long as 3 hours).

    The Voice Recorder no longer suddenly stops recording without input from me.

    Thanks everyone for your help!
