    Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0

    A quick question.

    I like to listen to radio programs on my tablet, that I download as audio files from the radio station's website. When I'm playing them, if I try to do something else at the same time, like browse the web or read emails, the audio file stops playing. Is there any way to stop this happening?

    Thanks for any help you can offer!

    Music should play in the background, as long as you don't exit the music app you're using (ie. if you hit the home key and open a browser while playing a song it should continue playing).

    Thanks for your reply. This doesn't happen. When I am playing an audio file, I click on the big button, which I assume is the home key, and the audio file stops immediately.

    What browser are you using to listen to the audio? If it's Chrome >= 25, this should just work. From Engadget...

    If you've ever tried to play audio from a web app in Chrome for Android, you've likely had the fun cut short the moment your attention wandered over to Google Maps or Instagram. A stable version of Chrome 25 is here to address that headache. Audio in the new browser build will continue to play in the background, and optionally pauses if there's an incoming phone call. Google has less perceptible upgrades behind the scenes, as well: multi-touch zoom and scrolling are faster, and the V8 rendering engine should be quicker on the draw with interactive pages. Those who won't wait for anything, including the end to an audio stream, can hit Google Play for the Chrome refresh.
