Generally, keep the AirDroid process running on devices' background is the key to solve the connection problem, such as failing to connect devices, devices offline or disconnect constantly.
Here the steps on how to keep AirDroid running in the background on OPPO devices: (settings and paths might differ from those of your phone)
Open Settings > Battery >
- Turn off "Power Saving Mode"
- Turn off "Smart Power Saver" (Available on ColorOS 5.2 and above)
- Custom Power Saver > Select AirDroid > Select “Allow Background Running” (For ColorOS 5.2 below: Disable“Background Freeze” & “Abnormal Apps Optimization” & “Doze” in Energy Saver)
- Smart power saving scenarios > Turn off "Sleeping Mode"
- App quick freeze > Find AirDroid > Turn off Auto freeze
3、Allow AirDroid to Startup
- ColorOS 7 and above：Settings > App Management > Find AirDroid > Enable Startup
- ColorOS 3.0-6.1.2: Phone Manager > Privacy Peremissons > Startup Manager > Turn AirDroid on
4、Lock AirDroid in the background
Press Menu button > Slide down AirDroid interface until you see a lock icon at the left upper corner
- Background tasks will consume a device's limited resources, like RAM and battery. So the Android OS system will handle the task killer when memory is low and very deliberately doesn't allow you or app developers to control the background task killer, that's why we can't keep AirDroid service permanently alive in the background.
- Besides, the special case below will cause a connection problem too:
- Device power-off
- AirDroid has been uninstalled
- There is no network on the device
