Media Controller Sabotaging Phone Music Player

Post by joffreykhan » Wed Sep 04, 2019 2:27 pm

When streaming Pandora on phone to a Bluetooth speaker, If I walk away from my phone it pauses music play back. It does this whether or not watch is set to start media player automatically, and whether or not I'm using the actual Pandora watch app vs. This is annoying given that I usually have my phone charging while listening to music at work. When I walk away from my area, it stops the tunes.

I want a way to leave my watch connected to my phone's Bluetooth for data (no public wi-fi at work and not on Verizon), but not interact with my music playback.

Is there a way to completely disable media controls on the watch?

Thanks, in advance.

Have you tried disabling "Auto launch media controls" under general in the settings menu?

Garry,

Thanks for the idea. As I said in the original post, enabling or disabling the auto launch has no impact on the problem.

I wasn't sure if we were referring to the same setting. I haven't heard of this behavior elsewhere. I will check with the rest of the team and see if they have any ideas.
