Stream Dropouts

If your device is losing connectivity due to either:

  • inconsistent or slow wifi / data
  • mobile signal is switching between towers
  • mobile data is switching between 3G and 4G/5G

We highly recommend you enter the Calm Radio app’s Settings menu and reduce the audio quality setting to either Normal or Mobile.

Closing Background Apps

Your device may have too many applications open in the background memory which can cause your device to stall or slow down resulting in poor performance. Close as many apps as possible if your device response is slow.

View Open Apps. Click on the bottom the left of the Home button to reveal your open apps. This will reveal all the application you have previously opened.

Close an app. You can remove individual applications from the background memory, or select “Close All” to remove all open applications from memory. This is a safe procedure and will not result in losing installed apps.

Re-installing Your App

It may be necessary occasionally to re-install your Calm Radio Android app. To re-install your app:

  1. Delete the Calm Radio app by opening your phone’s Settings app
  2. Look for “Apps
  3. Look for Calm Radio
  4. Select “Uninstall
  5. Then, visit the Play Store app on your device, and search for “Calm Radio
