For Xiaomi, we recommend to do the the following things

  1. Search for Bob from the device’s search bar → long-press it → select “App info”
  2. Under “Permissions”, enable “Autostart”
  3. Select “Battery saver”* and switch Bob to “No restrictions”

In addition to that, open the “recent apps” button (usually the square button on the bottom of the device):

  1. Find Bob, and long-press it
  2. Tap the lock icon**

---

*Despite the term “Battery saver”, switching to this state should not change the usage in a significant way. Bob is already optimized to use a very low battery power. In fact, this is actually the guideline of both Android and iOS – not to explicitly close apps (excluding cases such as radio or navigation apps).

** This should not increase the battery usage, as in the background, the app is switched to Suspended mode, which keeps its resources to the minimum. In fact, this is actually the guideline of both Android and iOS – not to explicitly close apps (excluding cases such as radio or navigation apps).
