Among all the possibilities offered by cell phones, we usually find the function to listen to FM radio. We are facing a means that allows us to follow the minute by minute news, sports or have fun with the myriad of programs that are in the different stations in Spain or in your country.
However, they are also common problems to use the radio on mobile , which puts us in a difficult situation. Finding the key that allows us to return to enjoy this app on our phone will not be easy, but not impossible. Therefore, we will give you all the keys you need to know in order to fix it.
You only have to follow the steps that we explain for your specific problem and still we recommend you take a look at the other failures, as their solutions could be what your phone really needs.
Fix the radio in your phone
It’s time to see the various solutions that we have at our disposal to work without any problems. Therefore, we will see the most common failures, as well as the method to fix it.
In case you have found the radio app on your mobile, it means that you can enjoy it, although you may have tried to put it into operation and you can not hear anything, not even the classic blue noise when you do not get a station. This is because is essential to use a headset to make antenna and allows us then yes, do a search for stations to find the frequency we are looking for.
However, there are more and more native apps that do not need to connect the headphones. So, if this happens to you, you’d better clear your cache. Go to Settings > Apps and notifications > access the software in question. Once done tap on ‘Storage’ and tap on the options to both clear data and cache. Afterwards, it will also be a good idea to restart the mobile, and then check if the error with the tuning of the station has disappeared from the device.
I can not find stations
Even if you have connected a headset to the mobile, it is possible that we find it difficult to find the stations on the mobile. The reason for this is that the mobile requires some requirements to be able to tune the frequencies as, for example, we find in a place away from interference such as a TV, Wi-Fi router or other electronic devices.
The easiest place to find the stations will be the street, because some walls of houses and buildings can also make it very complicated. So try to go outside, to see if now your smartphone is able to find your favorite radio station.
The sound is very bad
In case we are finding the stations but, however, the sound is not clear, the first thing we must assess is the area where we are. As we have mentioned before, in the classroom is where the sound quality of the radio will be superior. However, it will also be a good idea to check if it is not the fault of the speaker or headphones we are using. To do this, it will be as easy as playing a video from YouTube or a song that we have on the phone. If you can hear everything well, it will be the fault of this software. On the other hand, if the smartphone also sounds bad, it will be a software problem of the device, the headphones or the speakers of the terminal.
The sound can also be heard badly due to different components of the mobile itself. Among them are Bluetooth, NFC, mobile data or Wi-Fi, so we can try to turn them off. Then, we will have to check what is the cause of the mobile radio is not heard well as it should.
The stations stop by themselves
Another of the problems that appear in cell phones that have this tool occurs when using it, because in several situations users have found that without warning it turns off without us having any other than to turn it back on. This problem with the radio of the mobile can generate confusion and the truth is that we only have to think of several things that may have caused it:
- Disable battery saving.
- Power limits. In some mobiles within Settings > Battery > Management of energy consumption in the background we find forced closures due to the use of the radio in the background, where we only have to disable them.
- Check if within the app we find the function ‘Automatic shutdown’. If a specific time is enabled, disable this option.
It stops when using another app
One of the problems that can generate more confusion is when using other apps while listening to the radio. Google especially has a bug with its applications and this mechanism, since it uses the microphone to access the assistant and other intelligent tools.
By default, the mobile can not use the radio or other means of sound playback while the microphone works and this is what causes it. The only thing we have to do in this case is to access the Settings > Applications > enter Google or the app that causes this pause and access the permissions, to once inside prevent it can use this component.
In addition, if the radio application stops immediately. The solution in these situations is to close all background apps that we have open on the phone, which may interfere with the use of this tool on the smartphone. So, open the multitasking of your smartphone and close the recent applications.
I have no radio on the mobile
The question that many ask themselves when trying to find the FM radio between applications or settings and that brings many head. The truth is that there are fewer and fewer cell phones that integrate the necessary chip so that we can use without installing anything this tool, which allows us to enjoy this in the most traditional way on cell phones. Basically, because it occupies an important space that has been allocated to other elements such as the battery. For this reason, it is impossible to use the classic method to enjoy this tool on the smartphone.
However, we do not have to give it all up for lost, since we can opt for the option to go to tune online our favorite station or help us with the many radio applications that exist. These consume megabytes of our rate, although it is not something worrying and can be compared to play music on streaming platforms.
So here we leave you some app so you can tune your favorite station in case you do not have the application natively in the operating system of your Android:
