In Android 5.x and underneath, getting to your list of running applications was basic—you would hop into Settings > Apps > Running. Simple! In Android 6.0, nonetheless, Google moved this setting. Despite everything it not super hard to discover, but rather it’s somewhat trickier. However, as usual, we have your back. Here’s the manner by which to discover it once your gadget is on Marshmallow (or later).
Why Would You Need to Access Running Services?
Well, the very short answer of this is: you usually wouldn’t—that is presumably why Google “hide” this setting beginning in Marshmallow. In any case, there are, be that as it may, a couple of circumstances when you may need to bounce into the Running Services menu and begin glancing around.
Most importantly others, the principle reason you may need to see what’s happening off camera is if an application is making trouble. That implies various things: perhaps it’s continually drive shutting and you need to slaughter the procedure, possibly there’s something simply biting through battery. In any case, knowing where to look is dependably the begin of a decent examination.
Where to Find Running Services in Android 6.0
As I’ve noted before, on Android 5.x and underneath, you may view what was going ahead by bouncing in Settings > Apps > Running. This shows both running procedures and services, alongside the amount of memory (RAM) is being utilized by System and Apps, and in addition what amount is still accessible.
To locate the same menu in Marshmallow, you’ll initially need to empower Developer Options. Do this by heading into Settings, then About Phone.
Once there, discover the Software data area—that will be a different section on a few telephones (Samsung, LG), yet not on others, similar to Nexus gadgets. You’re searching for the Build Number, so you may need to jab around a bit before you discover it. The initial two pictures underneath were taken from the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and the last one from the Nexus 6P. As should be obvious, the construct is in two better places.
When you’ve discovered it, tap it seven times. You’ll see a toast notice telling you what number of are left until “you turn into developer.” Once it’s been tapped seven times, another menu will be opened only above About Phone in the fundamental Settings menu.
Back in Settings, head into Developer Options. You ought to see “Running services” a little path down this menu—that is what you’re searching for. When you tap “Running services,” you ought to be given a well known screen—it’s the very same one from Lollipop. Just in an alternate spot.
This isn’t something you ought to need to get into regularly, if at any time by any stretch of the imagination. Still, it’s great to know where to locate this fair on the off chance that you ever need to—however like the menu where it’s currently discovered recommends, this is truly for developers.
