Here are some possible solutions to troubleshoot when your podcast is stopping suddenly in the Podbean Android app:

1. Is your device on battery-saving mode? If so, please turn it off.

  • For Samsung users, please go to the phone Settings app->Podbean->Battery->Allow background activity.
  • For Pixel users, please go to the phone Settings app->Podbean->Battery->Background restriction and remove it. 
  • For Huawei users, please go to the phone Settings app->Podbean->Power usage details->App launch->turn on the setting "Run in background".

2. Are you using any cache-clearing or power-saving apps like Greenify or 360 Security? If so, please turn those off.


3. Are  “Notifications" allowed for the Podbean app in your device Settings? If not, please allow notifications for the Podbean app.


4. Are you playing the episode with a strong network connection? If not, please use another Wi-Fi network or use cellular data.
