    Live streams continually drop, rarely recover w\o me refreshing the browser. I tried the apps too, but that didn't help. Applies to wifi and data connections. Phone company reset the service not help. I've twice done a factory data reset, which didn't fix it. Only other apps I've installed are blue mail and goodev volume booster and zoom.

    It cannot be that old.
    I was running Android 5.1 in 2016, and this device here is running 7.1.1

    Browsers can be fickle for streaming, especially after the screen goes off.

    Have you tried any other apps to stream with?

    Are you liatening to radio, podcasts, videos, or what?

    Perhaps there is a dedicated app that would not drop out so easily.

    For radio, this is what I use:

    Video is something else. What I watch is usually on Telegram or Tubi.

    Radio and news drop in browsers and apps. Podcasts and videos are fine.

    Does radio drop in the app I posted a link to?

    Did you check battery optimization settings for the apps that stop?

    Settings
    Apps & notifications
    Advanced
    Special access
    Battery optimization

    <arrow to the right of Not Optimized>

    All apps
    (find the apps in question, be sure that they are not optimized)

    See if it helps to do the same to Android System Webview.

    Battery

    And it looks like I was mistaken, Background restriction is what I was thinking of.

    Ok.
    I am going to assume that your device is using Chrome as a webview.

    That was typical for a time.

    Go to developers options, and select Webview implementation.

    You most likely have Chrome and Android System Webview as your options.

    See if you can select Android System Webview.

    If you cannot,that means that you have a device that requires you to disable Chrome in order to be able to do this.

    Personally, I don't use Chrome, or any Google apps (on the device that I carry), so this was no loss to me.

    If you use Chrome as your browser, I can suggest a few that are so much better.

    Anyway, check on the above first and then see if switching makes any difference.

    In settings.
    You have to first reveal them., if you have not already.

    Settings
    System
    About phone
    Build number
    (tap build number 7 times)

    Then back out of settings, enter

    Settings
    Advanced
    Developers options
    Webview implementation
