I’ve been using this undocumented API to allow audio from external apps to continue playing when my Corona apps start.
[lua]if audio.supportsSessionProperty then
audio.setSessionProperty( audio.MixMode, audio.AmbientMixMode )
As already mentioned, this API is undocumented. It seems to be working on Android devices and all iOS devices (iPad and iPod) but NOT iPhone.
It is important to me that my users can continue to enjoy their own choice of music while they play my game on iPhone since it’s so widely used.
As this is an unfinished and an undocumented, yet a crucial feature for Corona, I am looking to hire someone to implement this feature to Corona core. Pls let me know if you are interested. Thank you!
