On Android 4.3, and playing any type of media such as MP3 or movies, and a text message, e-mail, or any other type of messages is received, unless the phone is actually muted the audio playback is interrupted with a notification. Has that been addressed in KitKat?
I'd like the option to dis-able audio notifications (blinking LED or vibrate is preferred) so the audio experience isn't interrupted.
I'm running KitKat (4.4.2) on a MotoX, and I use the stock Email app for a work account. When the phone is locked with all notifications cleared, the first new email to arrives causes the notification sound to play- but no additional sounds play when more new emails arrive if I don't unlock the phone and clear the first one. Is this normal behavior for this app now? I would really like to find a way to get an audible alert for all new Emails like I used to get on my old Android 2.X phone.
Started this morning out of the clear blue. During audio playback (music, internet streaming, etc.) faint beeping sound only in the right headphone. Tried multiple headphones and it is there. EXTREMELY ANNOYING..
Looks like it pops up when the unit is accessing data. WFT?
Just got a Droid Incredible and love the phone so far. I have a problem however playing back video that I recorded. The video comes out fine but there is no audio track. Same happens when I play back on my PC. I have read some forum posts that were similar but none of the solutions offered have worked for me. I have done the following: Played back on phone, WMP, VLC and Quicktime.
One issue that I can't seem to remember being a problem on my G1 is that I can still hear notifications while music, video, or the FM Radio is being played back. Obviously, I can't really test the FM Radio bit on my G1, but I'm certain that this wasn't an issue when playing music or watching videos (including YouTube). It wouldn't be much of a problem if the notification didn't completely mute the sound of whatever else I'm doing for however long it plays. Anyone else notice this? Is there a work around I'm not seeing in the settings?
I have a Java application where in I am trying to read Audio samples from the mic into a buffer and then write the samples back to speaker from a buffer for playing. I have used AudioRecord and AudioTrack interfaces. Below are my configurations for the Record and Track object creation. AudioTrack(0, 8000, 2, 2, playBufSize, 1); AudioRecord(1, 8000, 2, 2, recBufSize); Using AudioRecord interface I am able to read the samples from mic continiously (8000 sampling rate and 640 samples per read). In the similar way I am also able to write some pcm samples to the speaker from a buffer and play it continuously using the AudioTrack interface (without record). But when I try to do both record and play simultaneously I am able to only record audio from mic but I am not able to play any samples to speaker. I am getting this error " ------- attemp playback while recording, cheat it! ----- " in the log cat.
I have given the following permissions "android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO" and "android.permission.MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS" in the Manifest file. I didn't find any special permission to play the audio. Is there anything else that I need to enable?
I am trying to play raw audio samples ( 16 bit, stereo, @ 32000KHz) using AudioTrack, in "MODE_STREAM" mode. I could play the first video buffer successfully but, After having received "onMarkerReached" for that raw audio buffer, I wonder how to push more audio data in AudioTrack ? without closing/stopping it. Writing more data to AudioTrack in "onMarkerReached" callback does not help. I am using the same thread to construct the AudioTrack and pump in audio - buffers and receive callbacks.
I'm new to development on Android and thought maybe you could shed some light on my problem. I'm trying to code up a little object to take care of playing a list of songs at a constantly varying playback rate. I just spent a god chunk of time getting it going with SoundPool only to find out about the undocumented 1 mb file limit. Do you guys have any ideas? Should I be using AudioTrack? I was going to try that next. Any tips or code samples for doing this kind of thing? It's such a shame that neither JetPlayer nor MediaPlayer support rate changes.
Is horrible audio playback just part of the 2.2 leak or is it just me? Kangerade, BB, and the stock 2.2 all have very tinny sounding audio quality regardless of the player used. Anyone else noticed this? Better yet, anyone have a fix?
I have had my Droid since release day, and I am still carrying an iPod Touch as well. My problem is that I keep getting problems with audio playback using headphones with an inline remote. For me, it is absolutely essential to be able to pause/play audio when out and about. People talk to me, I get up to the checkout stand, etc. And, the process of pulling the phone out, swiping it on, getting to the app and pressing pause just won't work. Headphones with inline remotes are the only thing that really work for me.
The problem is that the Droid can't seem to play nicely with these remotes. The volume controls never work at all, and sometimes the pause/play works, sometimes it acts like a skip to the next track. Sometimes it just freaks out and starts cycling through my various audio apps (Listen, Pandora, the stock music app) and then eventually freezes. Has anyone found a workable way to do what I want? I need to be able to pause and play audio while the phone is entirely stashed away.
I used to get notified whenever I received an MMS with data turned off.I could tell its an MMS but I could not read it.In order to read it I would have to turn on my data and the message would show up( whatever it was picture or group message or a High priority system alert from a server from my office) Now 2 weeks ago I dont know what changed but this stopped happening.
So I turned on my data one day and I started receiving all these MMS messages that were like a week old.(one of them was an alert from my office) which means i was not getting any MMS notifications.and in order to get MMS notifications I would always need to keep my data on.
How do i get my old setup back which I used to get notified whenever I received an MMS with data turned off.and In order to read it I would have to turn on my data and the message would show up.
Im on family mobile FYI. Im using stock Nexus 4 ROM. No Root.Im using GO SMS PRO & switched to CHOMPSMS.
I've recently just switched over to Android after 5 years with Windows mobile & windows phone. Currently using the Sony Xperia Z1 compact on KitKat, and all is going great so far. But just one issue I am having with notifications from the play store. I have set apps to not auto-update themselves, but have chosen to be notified about updates in the system tray. Unfortunately, I don't seem to be receiving these notifications, even though when i click on 'my apps', I see several need updated.
Do you have to wait a certain amount of time before the system notifies you of these updates?
possible to use the KitKat toast notifications in 4.3 ROM? I am currently using this ROM:URL....I tried to install this: URL.... but my phone started vibrating randomly (Probably 8 times in 10 seconds so pretty annoying) and i kept getting the "com.phone.android has stopped working" error.
New to Android moving from the iProduct line of goods. What I can add to the locked home screen to display: Missed call, Text received, Email received. I think I need to add a widget or do I add an app which automatically adds any widget available on the widget menu?
Is there one current good app or widget that will do all the above.
I have a friend at work who has a cheapie smartphone running vanilla Android and whenever he has his phone playing on the dock his lockscreen displays the audio levels behind the password prompt.
Audiophiles, I don't know the correct term for it, but it's all those little lines that go up for each frequency range. The treble side is on the left, bass is on the right.The background is black, the levels thing is a light blue-ish color.
I know he uses Play Music and he has a Pattern Lock, but so far I haven't been able to replicate it on my phone.My phone is a Galaxy S4 with 4.4.2 and the latest Play Music, swipe unlock, and a static picture as the background.I see no options for the levels thing in Play Music nor in my lockscreen settings.Is this something only in vanilla Android that Samsung tossed out?I think it looks really cool; better than the square album artwork awkwardly cropped to fit a rectangular screen.
If this is something vanilla only, are there any good free equivalents in the Play Store you'd recommend?How about compatibility with Rocket Player?
I have a Virgin Mobile Galaxy S3 that just got the 4.4 update this morning. Afterwards it had to redownload/update nearly every app on the device as well as all my SNES and Playsation ROMs which I though was odd.
Now all the notifications for thos downloads will not go away. I've cleared them all at once, I've cleared them all individually. When I turn the screen off and then turn it back on an dunlock the phone all those notifications are back in the notification bar.
I was prompted to update to Kit Kat on my Samsung Galaxy S3 this morning. The updated downloaded & installed without any issues - but now the same 3 notifications are constantly displayed on my phone. If I clear, they come back. Same for when I re-boot my phone:
01-Take-A-Chance.mp3 Download complete
ioOX40xgzyOil.gif Download complete
0zHzHEe.gif Download complete
It has only happened since this update and it's getting very irritating having these display permanently and come back seconds after I clear each time.
Now, when it comes to the official Android Facebook application I've been using it on my Nexus 5 and my previous Galaxy S2. I use to always try and remember to place it in the background to minimise battery drain (I know this isn't perfect, but it did make a difference battery wise, because if I leave it in the foreground, the battery would drain).
Recently I've been running a number of tests and I have identified whenever I receive a Facebook notification, battery drain dramatically increases (e.g. over 10% in an hour with no use (sitting idle (black screen) and locked). If I don't get Facebook notifications, then the battery life is solid and last for ages.
So I tried: Disabling all Facebook notifications. I've then tested a number of times... I get a friend to send me a Facebook private message (they then SMS me to let me know when they send the Facebook message). My phone does NOT generate a Facebook notification message, BUT I notice the dramatic battery drain kicks in as described above (phone gets very warm as well) when they send the Facebook notification.
* I then tried ending the Facebook task. This does nothing. The dramatic battery drain pattern continues.
* If I turn the phone on and off, it stops the battery drain.
* I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Facebook. No difference, problem still occurs.
* I'm using the latest Facebook application as at 30/01/14.
I know the advice is to uninstall Facebook, but I know I could also install Greenify, but I don't want to root my phone (yet) (and the non-rooted feature is something you need to remember to do - knowing me I will forget to force stop)).
There was something similar on Facebook Messenger (which I don't have installed) (I just found a battery-draining bug in the Facebook Messenger standalone app, and how to report it at Facebook who can fix it. : Android)
Whenever I leave a wifi zone and the phone switches to mobile data I get annoying notification messages/bong from the stock email app that it "can't sign in to Yahoo mail". If I follow the notification it says the username/password is wrong which is obviously crap because it has no trouble getting mail over wifi.
I just heard on a podcast that this was announced last year and I didn't even realize it was supposed to work. I have a Nexus 5 and 7 and the google calendar notifications always need to be dismissed on each device, they never sync the dismissals.
Same google and calendar accounts, using fruux. what gives?
I'm trying to create an app that will inject any time an app is uninstalled. Is there a standard uninstaller function that is called regardless of the method used (like via the Marketplace, settings manager, or a third party app)? And is it possible to kill this function before it starts?
Ideally, I'd like to create a listener that listens for the uninstaller function and then injects a standard confirm/cancel dialogue.
