    With this new update we got recently, my music apps are shutting down after I pause. I have to unlock the phone, go to the app and play the music again. Its getting extremely annoying. If anyone has a solution to this i would appreciate it.

    One more thing, my Gmail is just stuck in sync. I have checked the settings and its set to 15 min, but on the dropdown notifications its there all the time syncing. Im sure that is draining my battery.

    Did you figure anything out on this? I'm having the same issue on my Note 8 after the Oreo update, if I pause Pandora, iheartradio, or sometimes even Google play music for more than a couple seconds the app closes completely. This was not an issue prior to Oreo.

    I'm having the same problem since I upgraded from an S7 to an S9. It's driving me nuts. I listen to music with headphones while at work and I often have to pause my music. Sometimes it stays active and I can resume play. Sometimes it closes Pandora and I have to get into the app again, but it moves on to the next song.

    I've tried looking into several options in the system, but can't find anything that would close the app.

    Same here. I think the app stays open but somehow loses focus so Bluetooth controls don't get to it. Not sure though. Regardless, it is really annoying. I am just happy I found others having this problem. Maybe they will actually fix it?

    As far as I can tell, this is the new power monitor features in Oreo for battery life savings. If you go into device maintenance, then under battery, and then go to unmonitored apps, then hit the 3 dot overflow menu, and add apps, try adding your music app. I added Pandora an hour or so ago and haven't had the problem again yet. I will post back after testing longer term...

    THANK YOU!!!!!

    So far this fix has worked. just like HALFLING, i too listen at work and have to pause my music sometimes. i really hated having to unlock my phone and get back into pandora. but since i read your post with instructions on how to prevent music listening from being killed, it has worked. now when i HAVE to pause and its a good song playing i can go right back to it instead of re-launching and getting a new song. ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU!!!!!

    Currently on a pixel and had to go to settings, apps & Notifications, special apps access, battery optimization. Select the drop down menu to show all apps. Then select the app and chose not to optimize. That should let the apps on the back ground with the song paused.
