How to stop background apps on android?

background apps on android

Remember, apps running in the background use resources of your device. Android apps often run in the background because this operating system is good at switching different things. It will help you to manage the smooth performance of your phone. Here is a guide for your assistance.

Check Battery Usage

In the first step, you have to check the battery usage. The usage breakdown of battery is available in Android devices. To access usage, you must go to Settings – Battery – Battery Usage.

By scrolling down, you can see the percentage next to every app. This percentage will show battery usage. You have to find “Screen” at the top of the listings. See some Google apps on the list. If you are looking for a game or app that is taking a maximum of battery, you can disable or uninstall it.background apps on android

Evaluate Running Services

Look at running services in your device. Check developer options on an Android device. See these steps:

  • Move to “Settings – About device” and click on “Build number” 7 times to unlock the options of the developer. With a Samsung Galaxy, you will use different settings. Go to “Settings – Software Info – Build Number”.
  • A pop-up message will inform you that you are a developer.
  • Now open “Settings – Developer Options” and check for process statistics or running services (based on the Android version). Running services in 6.0 Android Marshmallow or advanced may allow you to see the live status of RAM at the top. Moreover, you can check related procedures, services and list of apps. By default, you will see services in use, but click to show a cached procedure.
  • Remember, process statistics can be different in a different version of android. The percentage along with every program will show its frequency of running and usage of RAM. 

You are checking for suspiciously busy apps. It is not good to mess with system procedures and services of Google. If you don’t want your desired information, use the search bar in Google to find it. Work carefully to avoid unexpected problems or crashes on your device.

Try to find bloatware or a third-party app (not used for a long time) and uninstall or disable it. If some apps are running in the background, check their use and their importance in your life. You can uninstall any useless app from your device. It will help you to kill background activities.

Stop Apps in the Background

If you want an immediate solution, stop all apps running in the background temporarily. Carefully open apps because unnecessary apps will kill your battery by running in the background. Immediately stop an app after using it.
