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.
Running Poweramp 2.0.9 build 539 on a Nexus 4 with Android 4.4.2 and stock ROM. Since around the time I upgraded to Android 4.4.2, I seem to have an issue playing anything over bluetooth. When I do, the track seems to pause randomly for a few seconds quite often. The app doesn't seem to be crashing, but listening to anything is not really possible over bluetooth. The same tracks play fine using headphones. I only have one bluetooth receiver (a Belkin Bluetooth Car Hands-Free Kit) but it seems to be operating properly.
