      Poweramp v3 Project Update   04/24/2017

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss.    

Nokia 8 and screen off control issue

3 posts in this topic

So I bought the new Nokia 8 and all other aspects seem to be working well with Poweramp, except when I put the screen off the normal headset controls seems to start to act weird. 

Normally when I double click on the headset (single button model) I move on to the next track, however with the new Nokia 8 it works great when the screen is on. 

But when I turn the screen off and put it in my pocket, then that double click function starts to move on to the next album instead of next track. 


I am currently using the 703 alpha version from the play store.

Ok kind of a false issue, because this same thing seems to happen with play music and spotify too. 

Nokia help chat guy said that this is due to some kind of security feature, but at least he promised to elevate it to the right people and hopefully they get it fixed soon either with the new security update or possibly when oreo arrives on it.

This "issue" can be marked as "solved", because after I got the 8.0 Oreo beta this issue was fixed by Nokia. 

Weird how Nokia "support" chat claimed that this was for security purposes, but suddenly such "security feature" is no longer needed in oreo.
