To take urgent care of Galaxy S8 Device Quality Agent (DQA) problem


US and Canadian Galaxy S8 users have complained of an error since the latest update for their devices was installed. The problem is an error message saying "DQA keeps stopping," which pops up each minute. DQA refers to Device Quality Agent, which usually runs in the background to monitor Wi-Fi connection quality.

After the identification of DQA problem is to turn off DQA or Wi-Fi. But, Samsung has very quickly released an update through its Samsung Galaxy Apps store to fix the problem permanently. The update arriving as over the air (OTA) at less than a megabyte and is labeled as "urgent".

Samsung has started pushing out an urgent update that is aimed at fixing a DQA (Device Quality Agent) issue that US and Canadian users of the Galaxy S8 have been facing ever since they installed the day-one software update.

Basically, an error started popping up every 30-seconds to a minute, saying "DQA keeps stopping." The DQA, in case you aren't aware, keeps a tab on the Wi-Fi quality throughout the handset.

Although there were a couple of workarounds (force closing the DQA app or disabling Wi-Fi), it's good that Samsung has quickly issued an update to solve the problem. The update is available through the tech giant's Galaxy Apps store.
