rkkoszewski Posted June 5, 2014 Share Posted June 5, 2014 Hello, this has been already many times asked in this Forum. I'm talking about 'Short Audio Focus' and Poweramp. Actually the only way that Poweramp handles 'Short Audio Focus' is pausing the song. This is actually nice if you have headphones connected and you don't want to listen to your song on the external loudspeaker when a message or whatever arrives. Ok, till there everything is fine. But it's not the same while connected via Bluetooth to your car head unit. So in combination with a Navigation app (Let's say TomTom for example) + Poweramp, every time the navigation says you should turn, the music just stops playing, and after finishing talking the music resumes. This is deadly annoying when you're driving inside of a city, then the music sounds like a scratched CD from the 90's.. stopping every 5 to 10 seconds. The proposed solution is always disable the 'Pause Song while Short Audio Focus', then the song keeps playing while the navigation app is talking.. but the song loudness is as loud as the voice talking, so you end up being unable to understand what the navigation system is saying, so it gets annoying again. FEATURE REQUEST:-> So again, I would like to request as an option to enable 'Song Volume Lowering on Short Audio Focus'. There are a lot of topics in this forum asking about this feature, and there are even some of them where the developers even answer.http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/5610-volume-ducking/ http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/5848-lower-volume-of-music-when-google-maps-prompts/http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/2873-mute-or-lower-volume-during-google-navigation-speech/http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/4591-lower-volume-on-notifications-short-audio-focus-change/http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/4468-volume-duck-instead-of-pause-while-playing-with-google-navigationwaze/http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/8287-audiofocus-option-for-lowering-volume-during-notificationsnavigation/ ... The developers said: While this is technically possible, this won't work on majority of devices (like Samsungs) as they forcibly enable speaker when notification comes. Such option is in our todo list though (for the minority of other devices)).Thanks. For a workaround for this issue, it could be a Bluetooth only feature (So it would work on Samsung and in others) and the annoying problem would be gone and everyone happy. I hope I'ill get a response from the developers, I would like to know if they would consider implementing this possibility or if everyone should stop asking about this feature (which the android stock player has by default).
