Sunvox on Android phone - keeping the session open in the background?

Post by teamoth » Mon Apr 22, 2019 2:39 am

Hi there, I've noticed that when running Sunvox on my Pixel 1 Android phone that when I leave the app (to read a message or something), when I go back to Sunvox it creates a new session, instead of displaying the session I was just working on. I have "Automatic session restore" enabled in the settings, but it makes no difference.

When I leave Sunvox with the audio playing it will keep playing in the background while I read an email or whatever, but when I go back to the app the audio cuts out and it creates a new session. I'm on Android 9. Anyone else have this problem? Any ideas?

Hiya, just wondering if you had a chance to try it out?

I have a pixel 1 running Android 9. I have a similar issue where the app resets whenever I switch to it, but it always recovers what I was last working on.

I'm still new to Android 9... how do you make it play in the background? :) When i try to switch to another app - the SunVox stops playing

I was under the assumption that background play isnt a feature. It isnt toggleable in the settings anyway. I run into the same issue when using Sunvox

Hi Sorry I've not replied sooner.
I've not been able to replicate having Sunvox play in the background, but I'm 100% sure it did, because I remember thinking it was funny that when I went back to Sunvox (from the text message, email or whatever it was that I clicked on the notification from) that it was odd that the audio stopped when I went back to Sunvox.
I'll have to do some more testing, but it might be just something that happens when you click on a notification pop-up and launch that app whilst using sunvox.
