Music stops when screen turns off Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

JUMP TO SOLUTION

When I play music my Samsung Galaxy S8 plus and the screen turns off, the music stops. This is since the last few updates that Samsung deplyed. 

 

I have already reset my phone to factory setting but this doesn't solve the issue. It seems that the problem is in the Samsung Music App itself. 

 

Does Samsung knows about this issue and can I solve this somehow by myself?

I found the answer by myself.

 

1. Go to Phone Settings

2. Go to Apps

3. Go to the 'Samsung Music' app and click on the settings (gear) wheel.

4. At the first tab there is an option to play music while screen is turned off. 

 

I never had issues with playin music and enver seen this option before. It seems that Samsung added this option in their last update. But I don't know which update this is.

 

Anyway thanks for the responses!

It is the Samsung Music app itself.. So no thirt-party apps. Spotify works fine on my phone when the screen is turned on and off. The problem is at Samsung itself..

Have you verified that Samsung music isn't under the list of sleeping apps?

Yes I tried already looking at this..

 

1. I start the music app of Samsung itself

2. I let the phone unlocked so the screen is turned on so the app is playing music.

3. When my phone turns the screen off, the app stops playing music. This iussue was not occured before a several updates before..

Is your Samsung Music player up to date?

Give these steps a try: Go to Phone Settings, Device Maintenance, Battery, then press Unmonitored Apps and add whatever video, or music App you use and it will finally stop pausing.

I have the same issue with third party streaming apps, like youtube, live mixtapes, etc. And sometimes the music or video will stop playing even when the screen is on, just out of nowhere, and none of those apps are on sleep mode for when my screen is off. So I don't think taking the app off of sleep mode is the answer to the problem, maybe it's just the software itself because of some old update. I wish there was a fix for this. I just hate when I'm listening to music in my car and have to keep starting it over because of these annoying playback errors...
