What is the purpose of scrobbling toggles in PA settings


Recommended Posts

The last time I checked, scrobbling via last.fm scrobbler apps (simple/official) works without having to enable either of these settings. The scrobbler apps just need notification access. So what does these toggles do exactly? Does enabling them send some kind of broadcast to these apps? Or something else?

TBH I would rather have a direct last.fm scrobbling feature. As in entering last.fm credentials in Poweramp and Poweramp sending track info to last.fm via API. It's how Freezer app does ūüôĄ. Current toggles are not so much useful, they don't affect scrobbling so far I have observed.

Recent Androids have enough APIs for music info and everything usually works out of the box, but older ones (Androids 5-7, which are still supported by Poweramp) may need those options to be activated for the scrobbling support.

One of my phones (a Samsung J2 Core with Android Go 8.0) doesn't enable Notification Access, therefore i cannot use a scroblble app.

There's any way to work around this ?

Or something like a native scrobbler inside PA ?

Thanks !
