How to Fix Lag: Brawl Stars

The lagging issue is visible when you join a match but your character moves slowly due to the lag denoted by the red Wi-Fi symbol in the game. While it usually happens someone has a poor internet connection with slow speeds, many players have reported the issue despite having a good internet connection.

In order to fix this issue, open the Settings app on your smartphone and then click on the apps section.

Now in the manage apps menu, select Brawl Stars and then tap on Clear Data—> Clear Cache. Doing this will delete any temporary files related to the app store on your smartphone.

Now open the permissions of the app and if you see the storage permission in the denied section then tap on it to allow the storage access for the app.

Head back into the app info of Brawl Stars and then select the Battery Usage option. Here click on the allow background activity toggle so the app can get access to the internet while running in the background.

This will ensure that your game will run smoothly and once that happens you can return to this menu to deny all the granted permissions.

If you are having issues while playing the game on a Wi-Fi connection then you can try playing it on your Mobile Data as you can then get access to your own dedicated internet for your smartphone instead of sharing the same bandwidth with other devices on a Wi-Fi network.

You can also check whether you are running the latest version of Brawl Stars from the Google Play Store and update it in case you are not to ensure that it runs smoothly. If the problem still persists then try reinstalling the game once.

That’s it, these are all the ways that you can follow to get a smooth lag-free gameplay experience on Brawl Stars!
