Resume listening to MP3 on Galaxy S8 at point where playback was paused

How can I resume listening to an MP3 on a Samsung Galaxy S8 cell phone at point where playback was last paused with the built in Galaxy S8 media player app?

When I later go back to resume listening where I had left off I am usually not able to resume at the point where playback left off at the point where I was last listening.

How can I resume at the point where I last left off?

It depends how long you have been away from the application for, and how you left the application. If the player was paused it should retain this setting and allow you to continue (and display from the swipe down). If it is stopped it will not retain track position.

Agreed.

You need to add the media player app to the list of unmonitored app or your Samsung S8 will close the app and you will not be able to resume the music.

Goto Settings -> device maintenance >battery>(scroll to bottom) unmonitored apps.
