Although I set the Smart Pause function, it doesn’t often work in my Galaxy S4.

Last Update Date : Apr 23. 2018



Smart pause detects that you are facing the screen with the front camera and pauses the video when you are facing away from the screen, and if you face the screen again, the video will resume.






Additionally, please remember that Smart Pause is only supported in the Samsung Video application. It does not work with downloaded players from Play Store.



Smart pause may not work in these situations:

- When the source of light is behind you or when using device in the dark
- When the device is shaking
- When interacting with the device in certain ways, such as using palm motions, tapping the screen, hovering your hand above the screen, using multi window or pop-ups, etc
- When connecting via AllShare Cast of HDMI
- Additionally, Smart Pause will be supported only in Samsung Video application
