Thread: Updates and downloads fail if phone not charging

    Updates and downloads fail if phone not charging

    I have set Beyond Pod to search for and download new episodes at a time when my phone is usually connected to its charger. However although I have NOT checked the box "download if charging only" in settings, if the phone is not connected to a charger then it does not update or download. WiFi is definitely on. Any ideas?

    Update: I am using Android Nougat and having read another post about a similar issue I set Beyond Pod's battery optimisation setting to "don't optimise". However, my scheduled update and download was still skipped this morning when the phone was not charging.

    What device? It could be that the manufacturer have added "helpful" battery saving features that breaks Android functionality.

    Oneplus 5, unrooted - should be virtually a vanilla Android experience. Same issue with previous phone which was an LG G4.

    Found solution - un-Greenified Beyond Pod Unlock Key.

    Mentioning that you are using an app that kills other apps to not allow them to do anything in the background would've been a good idea.
