Streaming issue after system update

    My S10e went through a system update in January 2021 and one aspect of streaming has changed. I stream a local radio station via Chrome using the station's own streaming link. After the update, the streaming stops after a minute or two. If the phone is plugged in/charging, it continues without interruption. I have not been able to figure out any battery or power setting that is causing the stream to stop.

    Hulu and YouTube apps work fine under battery power, so that makes me think I'm simply being pushed toward using dedicated apps rather than a browser.

    If anyone has any insight I'd love to hear from you.

    Try a different browser?

    I've been using Firefox for a few years now, and have never had this happen with any streams.

    Let me suggest one scenario I have experienced. If I begin streaming some audio in the house and go for a walk, the streaming stops for a while and then re-starts. What was happening for me is that in my house, my wifi signal is robust and the phone connects with that. On the walk, the phone has only has mobile data to use, so when my wifi signal is lost and any buffering is used up, I have loss of signal until the phone decides to connect to a weak LTE signal. The solution to losing the signal was, for me, to stop the phone's wifi signal when leaving the house; that way, it stays connected to the LTE signal.
