3aXL media cuts out under a few minutes after screen sleep after android 11 update. 0 Recommended Answers 56 Replies 135 Upvotes

I updated to android 11 and have been unable to listen to any media on my phone such as audible, podcasts, or Amazon music due to audio cutting out sporadically after screen sleep. If I pick my phone up and the screen turns on the audio will automatically come back from wherever it was.

This is apparently an issue that was around with one of the earlier OS updates and I tried some of those solution to fix it such as allowing the apps to use battery in the background and it hasn't fixed anything.  Audio will also sometimes cut in and out, stutter, then resume, it may be resuming from when the screen turns on due to notifications however.

I drive long distances for work and spend a lot of time in my car listening to audio books and this update just destroyed 75% of what I use my phone for these days. Like so many others I'm considering going over to apple after getting bent over the table with this "update".

Same issue with Pixel 3A after Android 11 update.

Affects Audible and Spotify through both phone speaker and Bluetooth to car.

Wish I knew how to roll this junk back without losing anything.

Same issue here with my pixel 3a audio cuts in and out on headphones and BT, doesn't matter what app I'm using, Spotify, VLC, YouTube etc. Worked fine tell 11 update. Hope they fix it soon.

Same.  It is particularly bad in the Audible app, but I have also experienced it while using Pocket Casts.

Same. I orginally thought it to be an issue with Pocket Casts, so I changed to (the inferior) Google Podcasts, where I found to my dismay there is no up-to-date BBC content.

Pocket Casts, Google Podcasts, BBC Sounds all work for a while after reboot, then become intermittent, unlistenable. 

I note that if I take the phone whilst experiencing intermittency, and connect it to a USB power source, playback returns to normal / uninterrupted. So it looks like something to do with battery optimisation. However, setting the phone to not optimise for Pocket Casts does not fix the issue (Haven't tried that for Google Podcasts and BBC Sounds.

I want my Pocket Casts back working properly! Google, this is your Android 11 issue, please fix it pronto

Soo this update killed audio for my phone as well....I have a pixel 3a xl and the audio cuts out whether I am wired or using bluetooth. The only way I can get audio to not be choppy is by leaving the screen on. This happens with spotify, youtube and pandora.

I'm having similar issues. It works fine on Bluetooth but struggles to play audio either through headphones or speakers when the screen is off

My 3a has not taken the update well, either. I can't download any podcasts on Google Podcasts anymore. They download almost all the way and then it shows the error icon right before it should finish. This update is trash trash trash.

Exactly the same issue here, I first thought it was my Bluetooth speaker that was the issue but happened with my headphones and even with an aux cable! I then realised it all started after that pesky update. Thankfully I found this forum to let me know I'm not going crazy. Hopefully they patch this up soon.
