Why does the radio app in Samsung Galaxy A5 suddenly mute and continues to play when turned off?

There is a bug in samsung galaxy a5 radio app. it just mutes unexpectedly and when I turn off on it continues playing. is anyone having this issue?




I fully understand you. But I think you don't have any other choice.


couldn't find the app in play store. And don't want to install an external one.


Thanks Carl. That's interesting, but I couldn't find that app in play store. And I don't want to install an external apk. And I couldn't find another fm radio in play store either.


Have you considered installing a different FM radio app?

Try this app I found: Link

Hope that helps!


That's odd, the radio should stop once you remove the headset. The headset is needed because it acts like the antenna for the FM radio. :)


Just to confirm, are you pertaining to FM radio or internet radio?


Haven't noticed it happening without headset. Usually it happens when I do something in parallel.
Once I did hard reset and tried radio before installing any app. And the problem didn't show. But when I installed some apps it started showing again. Samsung support said it may be due to conflict between some app and radio. If so, how can I identify that app?


How about if you remove the headset, does it continue?


It's the built in Radio 1.0 application.


What radio app are you using? Maybe it's just a glitch in the app.
