Android phone limitations

A lot of Android phones have power and data saving features that are enabled by default which prevent VoIP apps like Spoke Phone from receiving incoming calls consistently.

Android phones often turn off key services to applications that are not actively in use right now (applications that are open but running in the background). These services include data connectivity, WiFi access, and background processing which are needed for Spoke Phone to receive incoming calls.

If you are going to be using Android phones within your organization, you need to do three things to guarantee a consistent call experience:

  1. Ensure each device meets the minimum specifications listed in the table below
  2. Ensure each user has configured their phone settings to optimize their Android for Spoke Phone
  3. Ensure each user knows how to check their phone settings and repeat the optimization process upon experiencing any difficulties.*
Android users need to know how to repeat this process as Android phones have been
known to revert phone and app settings to default after a phone restart, or after
installing new software updates.

What if my Android device doesn't meet the minimum specifications above?
