This not necessarily a feature request or a bug report, so I placed it here. Setup: Samsung Galaxy Note9 (fully up to date as of posting this, Android version 9) Sony MDR XB-80BS and other bluetooth headsets Poweramp 3-build-301 I can't deal with music being interrupted by phone calls anymore. It completely ruins workouts, bike trips, trying to sleep while passing out to music etc. So far the best I've been able to do is have the phone on 'Do Not Disturb' and the headset with 'calls' turned off, but that still results in Poweramp pausing for the duration of the call (which is silent, thankfully). I want Poweramp to continue playing even though my phone is ringing silently and pause only if I answer the call. How? Under 'Headset/Bluetooth' --> 'Audio Focus' I found 'Pause In Call', but I can't change the behaviour since the option says "Poweramp always pauses for call via Bluetooth". I need Poweramp to completely ignore the phone part of my phone otherwise I'm going to have to look into other music players or buy an MP3 player to use for activities that I don't wish to be disturbed whilst performing... which is ridiculous. I think this is an Android problem and not a Poweramp problem, I'm simply looking to Poweramp and its hyper-granular settings to provide a workaround. Do Not Disturb is clearly broken: When turned on, all notifications should stop happening irrespective of whether or not the Bluetooth headset is configured for calls, but that's not what's going on. Ideally, I'd like my phone to vibrate on all notifications (including calls) without disrupting music playback, unless I choose to answer a phone call. I'd also like to be able to make phone calls without having to go into Bluetooth settings to turn the Bluetooth phone calls back on for my headset. I don't understand why this is so hard.
Hi Poweramp is unquestionably the best music player app, but this has been bugging me: When there is a notification, right now the player can either pause the currently playing song (which inexplicably bothers me), or it can keep playing normally (and maybe missing the notification) A good idea would be to add an option to lower the song volume without pausing it, making it easier to hear the notification itself. Maybe add a slider to allow us to select how low the volume should get?
