Turn off app during live stream

schrock.d2 1 year ago updated by Jeff Steiner 1 year ago 2

When playing a live stream sermon how do I stop it and turn it off vs just pause?   Pause just seems to leave it up in the notifications area as if it is still running in the background. Don't know if it still streaming data at that point of not. Just looking for a simple way to shut down the whole app

If you are using Android, the small player in the notification center can be swiped away to remove it. Shutting down the whole app is done the same way as force quitting any other app: swipe it away in the app switcher view of either iOS or Android. This will also clear it out of the notification center. 


A paused live stream should not continue to stream data beyond an initial buffer amount.

I noticed something similar last night while driving and came here to share feedback to that end, and it might relate to my earlier comments about the persistent banner and exiting the app.


After pausing the app on my phone, it was reactivated again by changing the van stereo volume, via the bluetooth connection in my vehicle, through which I was playing some music (i.e. - after adjusting the volume for the musicboth the music and AC Central were playing at the same time).  The only way I found to stop ACC completely was to "force quit", as you noted in your response.


Although I clearly don't understand app development well enough to know why or how it works this way, it doesn't seem "normal" or intuitive that the default method of shutting down the app is through  "force quitting".  An exit or quit button that just kills the app would be a nice feature to have.
