I’ve got thunkable pro so I can make a streaming radio app, and have run into an issue with the sound stopping if the screen turns off on IOS(not tested if the issue exists on Android), making it pointless. I’ve tested on iOS 13.1.2 and iOS 13.2 beta using iPhone 11 pro max and iPhone 8 plus.
I’ve tested many different ways including the following:
1,Sound component - This does not appear to work from my testing on IOS for streaming, it appears to only work with audio files not URLs, and stops as soon as the screen turns off.
2. WebViewer - I made a mobile version of our player on our website and works perfectly via safari on IOS and Android if the screen is off, but via the app, stops after around 30 from the screen turning off.
Update: I’ve just noticed it also stops after the same 30 seconds if you switch application. So in order for it continue streaming you need to keep the screen on and and keep the app in view.
How do I enable apps to continue working in the background with Thunkable Pro?
