Re: Walkman BUG

This is usually caused by a 3:rd party task killer or the phone running low on RAM. If you have any 3:rd party task killer, try removing it or make sure it's not set to kill apps and processes automatically.

If you don't have any task killer installed the phone is probably running low on RAM. When an app requests more RAM then what's currently available Android will close other apps and processes to free up as much RAM as needed. To avoid this, close apps that you're not using manually by tapping the icon at the lower right and swipe them to the side. Don't use a live wallpaper and too many widgets. The browser often uses alot of RAM. Don't have many tabs open at once.

Re: Walkman BUG

dear sir

 

here i would like to say one thing and this is very important

 

i think there is issue in walkman permision 

 

normally if you clear walkmen from recent penal then it will not stop playing musice in other phones

 

T2 ultra is the first phone where i have seen this that by swiping walmen from recent penal it get closed

 

i have other xperia phones as well and have tested this and even though we clear walkmen from recent penal musice don't stops 

 

so i think there is some issue in walkmen permision 

 

Note: after new update in walkmen app the issue not resolved it is still there

Re: Walkman BUG

Swiping Walkman from recent apps will kill the app and stop the music. It works the same way in for example ZL on 4.3, Z1 and Z2 on 4.4.

Does Walkman stop in your phone if you start playback and then don't use it for other things?

Re: Walkman BUG

Yes sir

 

I regularly use Walkman while I am on my way to classes and coming back to home

I every day feel this pain

What happens is for few minutes it works very well but after playing like 5 to 6 minutes it firstly lags like playing scrappy DVD and then stops playing music.

One it’s stopped, after tapping headphone answer key it continue to play again.

Re: Walkman BUG

Hi Guys,

 

I am using experia T2 ultra and getting the same error.

sometimes Walkman works for 5-6 mins and suddenly stops. And when i play next song it works as usual.

I have updated walkman with latest version 8.3.A.0.5
.

Lets c ... waiting for this update results.

 

I dont know how sony will do such a mistake on walkman.

Dont they test the device and then launch in the market? Slightly frowning Face

 

Thanks

Hemant
