Why is this constantly running in the background on my Galaxy Watch 5? Even when I haven't played media for a long time. Sometimes I haven't played media at all.

Is there a way to report this to developers?

Hi @CeeCeeTop!

Galaxy Wearable Music is the program that makes it possible to play music/media on the watch. This program will still run in the background even if you're not playing any music/media so it's ready just in case.

Thank you for your helpful reply.

Would you possibly know why the media controller continues to run also? So that the little icon at the bottom of the screen continues to show until next restart of the watch.

Is it for the same reason? It seems faulty to me, that it would be running in the background and showing an icon for something that hasn't been used for several hours.

The media icon at the bottom should only appear when something is playing, for example if you are watching a video on Youtube it will appear or if you are listening to music. The icon will still be visible if you pause what you are listening to.

You should be able to click on the icon to see what is being played.

Yes, all of this makes sense. It's just that it appears a little randomly and also doesn't always go away. So I was thinking that maybe it is a little bugged. It didn't start happening until after the update to UI 5.
