this is now partially supported, but you cannot control the audio playback with operating system controls yet
Bumping this 🙏🏿
Oh my God, I Need that to implement my Player. =/
Is it possible for us to fix this ourselves? If so, anyone want to work together to put this fix in expo?
@Brent Vatne: Brent thanks for the update -- how tightly couples are the native controls and the ability to load and unload new audio in the background?
@Brent Vatne is the yet in "but you cannot control the audio playback with operating system controls yet" why this is still in progress? Really what I am asking is will operating system controls (lockscreen on ios for example) definitely be supported as part of this work?
@Gentry Riggen: we aren't actively working on the operating system controls so i will change this away from in progress to planned
@Brent Vatne: Bummer that it is moved back to "Planned" but I really appreciate the response 💪
Hi, is there a straight forward tutorial on how to handle background notifications (app closed or phone sleeping) on expo? Audio is surely needed, but there are questions regarding handling the payload itself. Thanks!
@Kaspar Triebstok: see the 'data' property of the 'Notification' object. https://docs.expo.io/versions/v35.0.0/sdk/notifications/#notification
@Kaspar Triebstok: @Alex McKay any luck on this?
@Toheeb Okenla: quit using the managed workflow in favour of bare. couldn't be happier with my decision. the complete lack of engagement from expo team with users desiring features has driven my decision
Is this working on now?
on SDK 34 ios: Background playing is fine using expo client but when you unload and reload sound object, it paused.
How to make it work? Audio still stops when app is backgrounded on iOS as well as Android.
I am still confused why playing audio in background is still not fully supported?
