Dropped Audio [Android]

The Android operating system versions 5.x and 6.x have known bugs related to memory management (see here, here, and here). Over time, available memory is reduced, causing unexpected behavior. One of the common side effects of this issue is interrupted audio playback.

Rebooting fixes the issue temporarily, until the available memory is again reduced as a result of the bug.

If you experience dropped audio in our apps and you are using Android OS version 5.x or 6.x, please reboot your device.
