    Since I updated last night, when I try to play music or a podcast while Pokemon'ing, it kills the audio and I can't start it back up. Anyone know of a work around? It used to kill the audio, but I could just swap back and start it, then come back. But now it won't play anything while the game is active.

    So I found the answer:

    It appears that there is a potential workaround for Android users as well. See this post:

    Music is stopped each time you launch/reopen the game on Android. If your music player supports quick controls in the notification bar (e.g. Google Play, Amazon, Pandora), it can be restarted there. If they don't have a Play/Resume button there, it seems you're out of luck.
    Additionally, it looks like this step may or may not be required:

    you have to enable notifications for whatever music player you're using and then you can play it from the notification screen

    Also if you're using PocketCasts like I am, make sure to untick the box that hides the notification while paused.

    I noticed this as well. The most annoying part is when the screens times out and you turn it back on. It stops your music very annoying and is hopefully fixed in a patch soon.

    I don't recall Ingress ever having this problem so it should be fixable.
