    Hi, Friends.

    So I was playing Mario Kart (yay!) and it was using a lot of battery power and my Keyone phone suggested I turn stuff off.

    It took me to a SCREEN where I TURN OFF "Apps that are running in the background".

    I turned off heaps, but then tried to play MK and it said I was not connected to Google (but I was).
    I thought I'd go back to this screen and turn back on all the Google apps permissions... but I cannot find this screen.๐Ÿคท*โ™€๏ธ

    It had a list with On/Off switches on the right hand side.

    What am I looking for?

    Thank you.

    Should be able to hit the Settings cog, one of the categories should be Apps in the drop down list, should be ablr to select your setting in that area. I have a Samsung, but most of the settings have similarities.

    Thanks, BK.

    Unfortunately, I should have mentioned all the troubleshooting I had already tried.

    I tried to look under the cog > Apps.
    I tried watching some vids on YouTube, and reading some articles online.

    I wasn't able to find "Apps running in the background" settings, anywhere - I'm not sure what that screen was. *โ™€๏ธ

    I found this - but it isn't really helping.

    I tried looking in DTEK - but the fact that the phone itself prompted me to this On/Off background page, originally, means it exists, somewhere...?
    Couldn't find a "green battery" icon; just a grey one.

    (Also; will stop using emojis. They're not showing up properly)

    I reinstalled the game, and so far it's loading - but I still don't know where these background permissions are...

    Go back through apps and click Google app then click permissions and check all all do the same for Google Play store

    So MK was working earlier, but now it's saying *this*, again.

    Reinstalling every time you want to play is super-annoying.
    I think the game is new, new. It may still have some issues.
    Reinstalling involves about 12 Loading screens... or more!

    The only thing I did differently was turn off background apps, that I can no longer turn on...

    I suppose the only way to find it again is to use all my battery power, again, until my phone complains/warns me.

    ...that it's a common problem. It's a 'buggy' game (haha: karts)

    I wonder if anyone else also changed background permissions, or if that has nothing to do with game functionality at all.

    You need to go into the Power Center App. In there you can manage apps and games and automatic apps (apps that run in the background)

    Power Centre App > Manage Automatic Apps > switches!

    Thanks so much!

    I turned ON all the google-related ones, just in case.
