Help Moto X4 camera app kills other apps when opened.


I often listen to music or podcasts and want to take a picture. As soon as the camera is opened whatever player I listen to is killed and I have to start it again. It also kills the the Moto launcher which has to start again when I leave the camera, There's no crash message or anything like that. I have plenty of memory left even with the camera running. I'm on Android 8.0.0 on an Amazon Prime X4. Is this simply a bug or is there anything I can do about it?
