Is there a way to exclude some apps from "close all"?

I sometimes have many apps open on my device and want to quit them all except Spotify (for example) because I am listening to music while doing that. Spotify in this example could be "force closed" manually, not with the other apps (as default now) .


Device: Sony Xperia XA1

OS: 8.0.0

"close all" option is seen when clicking the right key on lower status bar

Reason why I'd like to close apps: I have a battery issue, and if I leave my most-used apps in background, it negatively affects battery life on my device

  • Also,why do you want to close other apps (barring Spotify)? – beeshyams Dec 7 '18 at 13:26
  • Have you tried the feature mentioned here? It kind of prevents an app being swiped from recent apps list too. – Firelord Dec 7 '18 at 20:42
