So I have this national radio news app.

Now I should like to use different apps while listening.

This doesn't work. As soon as I open a different app, the news app gets muted, even when all sounds are turned off in the other app.

How do I change that?

  • I don't think it's possible as Android design doesn't permit – beeshyams Mar 22 '17 at 8:40
  • @beeshyams and yet there ARE some apps that overlay their own sound without issues. – User1291 Mar 23 '17 at 9:14
  • Possibly due to the design of app to overcome this limitation; Android per se doesn't permit it - when an app is minimised it's audio is taken over by foreground app. This is my understanding as a user - I haven't a clue of development – beeshyams Mar 23 '17 at 9:21
