  1. I answered the basic question, which was to let the poster know that the notification issue in v2 with Oreo ROMs will not be fixed. Thus v3 alpha or the helper app are the best solutions for now. Build 709 is a lot closer to the original v2 interface than 790 is! Personal comments deleted. Andre

    Poweramp doesnt work in notification drawer

    Hopefully soon. The aim was May/June, but we're still awaiting the next full-featured beta release (after beta 790). Alpha build 709 is very stable and is perfectly suitable for a daily use though. Andre
  3. There will be no further development on Poweramp v2, it will be left as a legacy product for pre-Lollipop users. Test build 709 should solve the Oreo notification problem for you with a similar interface to v2, and you can continue to use that for as long as you like, you don't need to move over to the Material Design interface if you really don't like it.

    Correct, this is a problem with Oreo 8.1 ROMs, which is what I assume you are using? Otherwise try the invert notification colours option in Settings > Look and Feel > Status Bar/Notification. The Oreo issue won't be fixed in the v2 builds of Poweramp, but there is a helper app available (https://forum.powerampapp.com/topic/11033-quick-fix-for-notification-on-android-oreo-81-v140/) and it is already fixed in v3 test build 709 (https://forum.powerampapp.com/topic/11400-poweramp-alpha-build-709/) Andre

    Default vs Black Neon Skin

    Not a large difference, no. These old skins are all going away when Poweramp v3 is released though, so a bit of a moot point now. Andre
  6. If you are asking whether Poweramp sends full library listings and cover art to Bluetooth head-units, I don't think it does (it never has for me anyway). Have you ever seen that work from PA on your device? Andre

    Audio skips after update

    It varies, but should be in the power saving menu. Andre
  8. Not necessarily, the external device could just be requesting to read the physical files directly (with your phone acting like a USB stick). Andre

    Music stopping

    Yes, you said that before, which really provides no information at all. What Device do you have, ROM version (stock or modified), any other music processing apps running, storage location and file types tested, etc, which build of Poweramp (clean install or upgrade), etc. Andre
  10. Poweramp is sampling to 24/192 for its internal processing, but whether the final output stages of your device are then reconverting it back down to to 16 and 44/48 is another question. PA build 709 is better at detecting this and offering suitable choices, whereas build 790 just allowed you to select the option in PA without knowing what will actually reach your ears. You can check further in a command-line terminal app or using ADB on a computer. In a terminal emulator on your device: su <--- then grant root permission dumpsys media.audio_flinger Or via ABD on a computer: adb shell dumpsys media.audio_flinger Andre

    Poweramp alpha build-709

    You said you have selected WakeLock and Keep Service in PA Settings, so it must be your device being to aggressive with its power saving sleep features. Go into your Android settings and whitelist Poweramp so it does not get closed during device sleep. Andre
  12. My app stops unexpected after playing one or two songs. I have to start playing all over again. What's the problem?

    More information? Well, any information really. Andre

    Bypass EQ while using bluetooth

    The EQ settings can be adjusted and saved per output device, so yes you can do that. Andre
