Android Developer Options Background Process Limit


How to set background process limit through android developers options in Lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat and Oreo. Let me tell you, changing background process limit can affect your device performance including battery backup, third party apps and more. By default, the background process limit is set to standard process which is an ideal option to choose. But if you want to take a risk and want to try something extra then there are four more options to choose. The options are At most 1 process, At most 2 processes, At most 3 processes and At most 4 processes.

So, the first thing come in mind is why you want to limit your background process. What will happen if you set background limits? Let me tell you the difference between four of the limits.

On the first, your android phone was set to the standard limit which means you can run as much as apps simultaneously according to your need and this will get other apps slower as the new apps are getting started.

If you set no background process then the app will get close right after you leave it. If you set limits from 1 to 4 then apps will get start according to the limits.

Let’s take an example if you are running an app then close it and start other apps. Let us assume that you started 5 apps simultaneously. Then the process is that you will only get 4 apps running in the background if you set your limit 4 and it is according the limit you set.
