Data streaming continues when i'm calling

Marco Santambrogio 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 2
Now the music stops when I answer a call and resumes at the end, but i think the data transfer continues in the background even when I'm talking on the phone.
Is it possible to stop the streaming data and automatically restart it at the end of the call to reduce data consuption?

Thanks

Thanks for your request. Here is what we are currently doing. 

When streaming on CDMA networks such as Verizon or Sprint, the data connection is stopped immediately. On GSM networks the data connectivity still continues during a phone call.  Our current logic is continue streaming if connection dropped reconnect and if during a phone call it waits until phone call is over.  

We don't stop the stream cause some phone calls are short and we allow the stream to return without interruption.

What you think if we add a 15 or 30 sec timer to stop the stream?  That means if you are on the phone call longer than this time we stop the stream and resume upon ending the phone call....

I was thinking the same thing. Establish a time beyond which the streaming is stopped. So if a call is short I'll be back to my music quickly, but if the call is long, I save the data.

For my use would be fine 30 seconds.
It could become an advanced option of the application.
Thanks for the feedback! I might place an option under advanced settings... :)
