NewsBlur cuts off background audio


For the past couple of updates, just launching Newsblur for iOS causes background audio (podcasts, iTunes, Amazon music, etc) to stop. This is true when NewsBlur is just launching the article list, not even when loading an article that may or may not contain audio.

Similarly, if NewsBlur is already running and I just switch to it, background audio cuts off.

This wa swirling correctly until recently but I’m not sure which recent update triggered this behavior.

This is on an iPhone 11 running the latest iOS.

Anybody know why or can provide a workaround?



Follow-up. This is still happening and looks like it’s a regression: iOS app v8.0 interrupts audio I'm listening to

Any suggestions would be welcome.
