In rare cases, users running older versions of the CBC Radio app on an Android device may experience reduced battery life because the app has continued to use power after it has been closed.
Please ensure that you have the latest version of the CBC Radio app for Android installed on your device. The battery power issue has been resolved, and therefore only affects outdated versions of the app. Updating the app should fix the issue.
A temporary solution that does not involve updating the app is to close it by going to your device's Settings. Once there, click Apps, then CBC Radio, and then 'Force Stop' to completely shut down the app.
