[REQ] Music doesn't pause during Google Maps navigation [#17824]

Post by Blazeitkin »

Prior to version 1.4.4.0952 having the setting "Suppress notification sounds" unchecked would pause music while Google Maps was giving directions, but now it only quiets the music while the directions play over it.

Using Galaxy S9+, android version 9.0, kernel version and security patchs from August and September 2019

Hi,
I tested Today on my Moto X4 (Pie 9.0) and also on my HeadUnit (Android 8.1) and in both cases as soon as Navigation Directions are announced MMA volume was lowered by 70% so that navigation instructions are clearly heard.

I do not see the issue there.
Best regards,

I believe this has been around a long time where volume is lowered. I'm not sure this is controlled by MMA, instead it may be controlled by Maps or Android.

The issue is prior to the update on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ (Android 9), the music would be paused as opposed to lowered.

Maps refuses to use MMA as a default player, and I believe that has always been the case. However I followed a reddit post https://amp.reddit.com/r/androidapps/co ... icpodcast/ and until the recent update with MMA, music would pause instead of being lowered.

That might be a function of Android version which you updated in the way it changed handling of audio.

However it seems that Apps can control this, added as: https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=17824
