My app got rejected from Samsung's app store because it didn't pause on "Hold mode". Anyone familiar with Samsung devices know what this is? Is this a programmatically implemented feature or some special hardware event I have to capture?

I've google searched the problem before. There's no discussion on it and no documentation explaining in detail what it exactly is. :(

I must apologize for the above search comment. That is not how we do things around here to tell someone to Google something.

Let me see if I can get one of our Ambassador's to explain it or point you in a better direction.

The only thing I can think of it might be is to hold upon receiving a phone call, but I don't think that is right.

Thanks for trying to help guys. Since I can't find any useful information elsewhere regarding this, I'm going to make an educated guess and assume it's a pause button for the app since I see many apps in the store having this feature.

Just wondering whether you found any further information on this? My own game got flagged with the same defect, although as a recommendation rather than a rejection. Strangely, it was only flagged on an update, not on the first two releases. I've raised a ticket with Samsung asking for further information. If I get any, I'll post it here.

Did you get to the bottom of this?...It's 2020, and I've had a similar issue which references 'hold key'/'hold mode' from Samsung App Store. I've never heard of the hold key or hold mode... This page came back from a Google search :)

(FYI My issue is The Recents Key Button disappears after returning from hold key/hold mode)...Is this a lost in translation thing from Korean to English?
