Q. My live radio stream on the iOS/Android app keeps turning off after a while. How can I fix it?
A. Smartphones often try to conserve battery power. In case of no interaction with the phone after a while, the 'Battery Saver' mode kicks in on your smartphone and turns off the apps running in the background. This is controlled by your phone settings. To keep listening to uninterrupted broadcast, you can either turn off auto lock on your phone in the settings page (please use your own judgement before doing this) or use the 'Listen Live' page by clicking on red music sign in the top right hand corner of the app header.
