Galaxy Wearable Music, SOS, etc randomly run in the background on Galaxy Watch 4 even when I don't use the apps. I stop them from running in the background and lo and behold, they show up just minutes later running in the background again. This was never an issue before this one UI 5/Wear OS4 update. Samsung please, please fix this ASAP.
I'll start over. I updated the Galaxy watch 4 Classic LTE to the new software, 5. A few days later I noticed my watch battery was dying faster than normal. I went to my recent apps on the watch and cleared them. I noticed also after clearing them and going back to recent apps, the words "3 active in background". Those are galaxy wearable music, Health platform, and sometimes, emergency and safety. Sometimes the Media controls will be on that list, too.
I don't even know what the music thing. I only use Spotify. I clear all those but they will appear again at random when I check recent apps on the watch.
I hope that makes more sense. 😞
Yes, thank you for explaining! Here is something you can do. With the watch off, press both buttons until Samsung and "rebooting" appears underneath, then immediately press the Power/Home button many times until a menu appears. Tap the power button to scroll down to "Recovery" then hold the button to select. The watch will boot into Recovery Mode. Using the back/bottom button to scroll, highlight Wipe cache partition, then tap power to select and confirm on the following screen. Reboot from the original menu with the power button. If this doesn't work, something else you could try would be to reinstall the Galaxy Wearables app. May I ask if you have set up the options related to Safety and Emergency in your watch? The Media Controller is used for the Spotify app.
Yes, I do have a persons info on the safety and emergency.
Would it mess up the watch if I uninstalled the music and the health platform from the watch? I even tried to force stop the health platform app and it did not work either.
