Pausing Apps and Data



If you’re using an app online, like Spotify, and you pause the app is it still using data while paused? Thank you.


Hi @dpack10465

Good question, if you indeed mean “pause” (and not something like disabling the app), I would say…maybe.
If you pause an app that is streaming data to you, like music or video then yes, it should pause the data being consumed, BUT it could still be downloading ads or other little bits of data (giving your location for example).


Thanks, SuperT!
