Amazon Music uses data even when not playing music on Android Auto 0 Recommended Answers 2 Replies 0 Upvotes

Pixel 3a with Android 10 in 2016 Honda Accord with Android Auto.   I have noticed that Amazon Music uses data even though I don't play music with Amazon.  I do not have unlimited data so I'm trying to figure out what is going on.  Its not huge but it seems to use about 2 Megabytes of data per day and I am not listening to ANY music either via Android Auto or through the Amazon Music app.  All the data usage claims to be in the foreground but that seems like a lie since I'm not using the application.   Can anyone else check to see if Amazon Music is using data even when you don't stream music?   I suppose I'm going to have to uninstall this app since it leaks.

I have the Amazon Music installed but haven't used it lately and use Android Auto quite often. Just checked my phone stats and Amazon Music is not showing any data usage for me (also using a Pixel 3a).

Thanks for Checking.  Here is my theory.  I did stream some music from Amazon Music last month but haven't for several weeks.  Amazon was my 'default' I guess you could call it where it showed the Amazon music button on Android Auto at the bottom of my screen , but I didn't play anything in the last few weeks yet I still see a couple MB of data every day usage.   Is there a chance that Amazon Music is 'pre-buffering' some music so that it starts faster?  Maybe if I switch to another music app as my 'default' it won't do it?   I've switched to the Google Play music app and will see if my data continues to get used by Amazon Music.

Would you be willing to help me test this theory by switching your default music app to Amazon in Android Auto.  Maybe play one song, then don't play anything for the next several days to see if your data continues to go up even on days you aren't using it?
