Let audio output running


I would like to know if it’s possible when you start streaming form the SwiftSDK to let the output audio playing.

Because when the stream is starting, it’s cutting the audio output from the phone. If a song is playing in background, is it possible to let the song running in background when the stream is starting ?

Unfortunately, this is not possible at this time. Once the stream begins, the SDK will only capture the audio of external mic and any music playing on the device will not be captured.

The iOS SDK can continue streaming audio once the app is placed in the background, but due to camera access restrictions for background apps enforced by Apple, it can’t continue streaming video.

We don’t have this same feature in the Android SDK. We may have some better options for you on this in the future @cyril chaillan.
