Hello everyone and happy holidays!
I have an FP3+ and ever since I updated to Android 13 I have had this issue. Has anyone else experienced the same?
Whenever I leave my house and put any sound listening app (spotify, podcasts etc.) on, the sound stops mysteriously when I get far enough from my house. This happens on Spotify, podcast players and in a Finnish broadcasting company´s app that I use.
I am using Koss Porta Pro headphones (not the bluetooth ones) that has a mic and a stop/play button in the cable. Usually I should be able to put it on play/pause by pressing the button on the headphones cable but when this happens, pressing the button doesn´t work. I have to take out my phone and use the play button on the screen to resume to the song/podcast.
This happes every time I go out and start listening to something before I leave the door. It also happens approcx. within about 15 meters radius of the same exact place every time. I only have to resume to listening that one time, and after that, no matter how long I stay out, it doesn´t stop again. This doesn´t happen the other way around when I come in while listening to something.
I´ve been thinking that it has to have something to do with the phone dropping out of the WiFi network when I walk far enough from my home and that causing the music/podcast player to stop. For example the podcast app that I usually use has a feature, that if the next episode hasn´t been downloaded it warns me that listening/streaming might increase the data usage, and maybe the phone´s system is doing something similar and trying to avoid accidental streaming.
But then that happened also when I put on my headphones and Spotify in a local mall and walked out. In about 30 meters from the mall the music suddenly stopped. I am pretty sure I have never logged in to that mall´s wifi network and wasn´t logged in that time either.
Could it be that even the fact that the phone finds wifi networks messes it up?
