Google Android can use a lot of RAM, and CPU on your smartphone, tablet, settop boxes, and devices because of Background tasks. In Google Android 5.1 and below, you can “force stop” apps in the Android App’s setting section by tapping on the app you want to force stop, and tapping on the force stop button which will force stop the app. When the App is force stop, it will be hibernated, and not running until you launch the app again, or another app like a web browser launches the app to use the app to do a task like playing a video with the app you hibernated. Hibernated apps are not running, so your battery life should be better as well because there are fewer apps running in the background once you force stop a lot of apps like games, web browsers, media players, and social networking apps in the background.
Your device does not need to be rooted to “force stop” most apps, and you do not need a third-party app to manually force stop apps from the App settings section for an app you want to force stop.
It only takes a few seconds to force stop one app from the app settings section. [click to continue…]
