So since I Updated to the s8 plus I have not been able to stream my usual local radio app kokefm or online streamimg websites for more than 5 Minutes when the decice is locked. After 5 minutes the stream pauses, and when I unlock the phone the stream resumes. I have checked to make sure background data is enabled for the apps, and no power saving is on. Anyone else having this issue?

I figured out how to fix it if anyone else has this problem.

Go to settings > device maintenance > battery. Then click on battery usage then the three dots on the top right and go to optimize battery usage. There you can change to all apps and turn off optimization for whatever apps are not streaming in the background. Seems kinda redundant since I already had the apps in the not monitored list and allowed background network data... atleast it's working now.

Android 7 has a feature called "Doze" that will make most apps go into a suspended state after the device is idle for a while. This is possibly what's making your music app stop. If your app has a Stay Awake function, you may want to enable it and just turn the screen brightness down instead of off.

I think the problem in settings, that's all... Do you use Spotify? It has become so popular because it gives users what they want. The user can stream music from any Android device. Having over 75 million users, Spotify is the most popular among them. What is the reason behind its popularity and how much does it cost to build an app like Spotify?
