Some time ago there was much gnashing of teeth about the WiFi on phones going to sleep after a period of time, and it couldn’t wake up fast enough if a call came in, so the call would go directly to voicemail. The RW forum recommended an app called MacroDroid running a script that woke the phone up every 50 minutes or so. This seemed to fix my and others’ problem.
However, today I was working with RW customer support agent Anthony about another problem, and he wrote this: “I’ll say that a third party utility like Macrodroid should not be needed to keep the phone’s WiFi connection active for receiving calls - the Android Doze feature it seems you’re trying to fight with Macrodroid shouldn’t be affecting calls on an otherwise okay phone setup…”
So, my question is: is MacroDroid still recommended for the old WiFi problem or does Android and/or the RW app keep things awake enough so calls aren’t missed these days?
