Managing Background Audio Access on Stock X4

2019-12-16, 23:33 PM

Recently when listening to Podcasts using PodCast Addict the podcast that I've downloaded and stored locally randomly pause. I contacted the developer and sent him the logs. He indicated that he is seeing evidence of other audio apps running in the background that are pausing the Podcast audio and the app is responding to their trying to take focus. Today, I encountered a similar issue with GoToMeeting where periodically the app complained about another app requesting audio focus. This only began to happen recently.

Samsung devices have a way of controlling what background audio apps can do, but I see no way of doing this with my X4.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Kendoori,


Sounds like a 3rd party app causing this issue. Did you recently install or update any apps? When you're getting the prompt does it say what app is trying to use audio?


Best regards,
