I had to convince my Android phone that it had permission to let TuneIn Radio continue to stream music even after my screen went dark from inactivity. I don’t know what changed recently that caused me to need to do this, but I needed to do it.

My Solution

Right now, my Galaxy Note 8 runs Android 9, so these instructions might have become out of date by the time you read this. I hope they still help you.

  1. Open Android settings.
  2. Choose Apps.
  3. Choose the app TuneIn Radio.
  4. In the Usage section, choose Battery.
  5. Notice that the option Allow background activity is disabled. Enable it.

That’s it! Now TuneIn Radio continues to run in the background, even when I lock my device.
