Hi,
With tizen 3.0.0.2 I started to monitor battery usage and it looks like Music player is pretty much up there consuming my battery. I never actually use music player so not sure why it consumes battery. Is there any way to stop it permanently or disable it somehow?

Thanks.

I second this, I've also noticed that half the time when my watch wakes it's now on the media player and not the watch face. Even when no media was playing. Cannot figure out how to stop that from happening yet.. but as soon as I have enough time to figure it out I will share it here

1.

It seems only affected T-Mobile SM-R765T with latest Firmware R765TUVU3CRD2

2.
We could try to identify if these are settings problem...
Or inside this Firmware is buggy Music Player App

Maybe somebody here who is willing to identify problem...
Maybe workaround could be to replace this app, by older Version...

Best Regards

i did the following and so far, it seems to help but NOT sure if it will stick:
- force stop the app (music Player)
- clear cache on Gear S plugin, Gear IconX,
Gear
- restarted Gear and my phone (Note 8)

Battery still sucks. was far better on 3.0.0.1

**UPDATE 5/11/18** Did not help, still comes back, but not as often as it did.

While I still have not had time to look into this further, my guess is the only fix would be in the Gear app on our phone, notifications, and make sure we turn off notifications for whatever is causing this (not sure what the specific app would be as I am not wearing my watch right now so I cannot pull up the list of apps that I allow to send notifications to the watch)

That's the fix I intend to explore first, if you can check this for us, you may solve it now. Or maybe not lol

Unless I don't know where to look, there is no Music App under Notifications on the Gear app on my phone. It is a bug with the software update. See the last message here: https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/.../323436#M26792

THIS SEEMS TO BE A WORKAROUND.

I installed the Samsung Music App ( see https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...8&postcount=75) on my phone.. Once it was installed, I noticed there was a cache. I cleared the cache. Cleared the recent apps on the Gear S3 LTE and now about 3 hrs later, the Music app has not popped up once and battery life seems better. Others try this and let me know if it helps your.

Corrected: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...8&postcount=75. He did not have the issues and it is noted he had Samsung Music installed. When I installed it, all my issues now seemed to have disappeared.
