What happens (mobile device) when a user using Bluetooth or wired headphones tries to transmit or receive LISNR tones?

Currently on the Radius 2.0.0 Sample Application, the following behavior will occur:

Transmitting with Radius SDK

  • The behavior broadcasting with LISNR Radius while using headphones is the same as if you were listening to music then took a phone call. On mobile platforms, the audio stream can’t be shared therefore the music will be interrupted.

  • By default the Radius SDK will force the tone transmission to occur on the mobile device speaker, not the headphones.

Receiving with Radius SDK

  • iOS - headphone audio may be paused during listening*

  • Android - headphone audio is not interrupted*

*Updates to Android OS and iOS may affect this behavior. OS version specific testing is recommended.
