Last week we reported on a problem with the Galaxy Wearable app affecting Galaxy Watch 4 owners, which resulted in the app crashing constantly. Unlike that smartwatch, however, the same malfunctioning issue affects the Samsung earbuds, with a message saying “Galaxy Buds Manager keeps stopping” or “unresponsive.”
If you own any of the latest Samsung earbuds – Galaxy Buds Pro, Galaxy Buds 2, or Galaxy Buds Live, you may encounter a “continuous stop” or “not responding” message. We’ve seen a non-stop crashing issue on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 that the Galaxy Buds Pro and Galaxy Buds 2 were paired with, and it seems we’re not alone.
Over the past week or so, several forum threads and Reddit posts have been dedicated to this issue. In every case, the app used to facilitate the connection between your phone and the earbuds crashes almost continuously. It seems that the problem usually occurs randomly, but frequently, mainly on Samsung devices.
Those affected say that uninstalling and reinstalling the app seems to help. In response, the Samsung broker said that this is the appropriate procedure, along with granting the “Neighborhood devices” permission. For Galaxy Buds Pro and Buds Live, you will need version 4.1.22051251.
Of course, the Galaxy Watch 4 plug-in from Samsung encountered the exact same problem in the same time frame, which means that the problem is directly related. Samsung has since released plug-in updates for the Galaxy Watch 4 and two other smartwatches, so it’s reasonable to expect the same for Samsung’s earbuds.
